Hey,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How would you compute the probability of measuring a specific value of an observable (resp. range for continuous variables), given a wavefunction with an eigenbasis that is different from the one associated with the observable?

An example: Let's consider my wave function is a superposition of energy-eigenfunctions, how would I get the probability of finding the momentum in a range [a,b]?
