1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 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 2. Relevant equations The normalization condition is S f^2dx=1 (that S is an "integral" sign and the limits are from - infinity to + infinity) 3. 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.
