This isI n't formatted properly because I don't have much time.
The wave function is f(x) = e^-|2x|
I need to normalize this function
The normalization condition is
(that S is an "integral" sign and the limits are from - infinity to + infinity)
The Attempt at a Solution
S [(Ae^-|2x|)^2]dx = 1
A^2 S (e^-2|2x|)dx = 1
A^2 S (e^-4x)dx = 1
(-1/4)(A^2)(e^-4(infinity) - e^-4(0)) = 1
(-1/4)(A^2)(-1) = 1
A = sqrt(4)
A = 2
this doesn't seem right? can someone help? I'm pressed for time.
