Oscillation frequency of probability density P(x,t)

  1. Feb 21, 2010 #1
    If an electron is in an infinite 1-D square well of width L, how do you get oscillation frequency of the probability density for any energy state n?

    You think about the meaning of the phrase "stationary state" ... :wink:

    stationary state... I didn't understand that term till I found e^iwt disappear when it is squared.

    so frequency has to be 0.

    Thanks ^^
