Ive tried this quantum mechanic problem but im not getting the right anwser:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a-operator = [x-operator + i (complex #)] (p-operator) / (square root of 2)

and

a-operator ^ t = x-operator - i (p-operator) / square root of 2

where x operator is the position operator and p operator is the momentum operator, show that [a-operator, a-operator ^ t] = h-bar or plancks constant divided by 2pi,

or in expanded form, show that (a-operator)(a-operator ^ t) - (a-operator ^ t)(a-operator) = h-bar or plancks constant divided by 2pi
