I Have a question about how we arrive at the probabilities for the wavefunction collapsing to some specific value for an observable.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As far as I'm aware, the wavefunction is a superposition of possible states depending on the observable we try to measure.

Lets say I want to measure observable A,

What is the procedure for getting from the wavefunction to a set of possible outcomes with coefficients that weight the possibilities?

Apologies if the question isn't well formulated.

thanks in advance.
