To get at a particle's postion probability distribution we take the modulus of the wave function and square it etc. , but my lecturer said next year we will learn how to get at the particle's momentum probability distribution from the wavefunction, and mentioned something about taking the Fourier Transform of the wavefunction. I can't wait til next year, any one care to explain how the transform gives a momentum distribution?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
