(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Normalize sin ((n*pi*x)/L) where x is between 0 and L and n is a positive integer

2. Relevant equations

integral (psi*psi)dx=1

N^2 integral sin ((n*pi*x)/L)dx =1

I don't really understand if this integral is correct, what is the complex conjugate of the wavefunction?

Can i just integrate my wavefunction and say tht is psi*psi?

3. The attempt at a solution

N^2 integral sin ((n*pi*x)/L)dx =1

-N^2 Lcos ((n*pi*x/L))/n*pi=1

I just integrated the wavefunction and then solved for N
