Infinite potential well

  1. May 7, 2005 #1
    At t=0 an electron in an infinite potential well has a wave function corresponding to the lowest level of energy. The wave function is equal to the eigenfunction of the Hamiltonian where n=1.

    I am asked to calculate the uncertainty of the electron's momentum. I don't really know where to start from.

    Thanks for your advice

    How about the definition of the uncertainty...?
