friends, this may appear a silly question to experts, but still......(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

why/ on what physical reasons am i associationizing -ih/2 pi d/dx with the momentum operator while working in X basis?

i mean, ok. in x basis the momentum operator takes the structurtum of the first derivative of the dirac delta but why scientists associated this mathematical thing with something as as momentum operator?
