I am to find if the following wave function can predict the probability that a particle is somewhere (anywhere) in the box to be t-dependent. And whether it has time-dependent average energy.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] \Psi_A (x,t) =K (-\Psi_6 (x,t) + \Psi_4 (x,t)- \Psi_2 (x,t))[/tex]

here's what I did to find if this finction predicts that the particle is somehere in the box:

[tex] \int \Psi_A (x,t) * \Psi_A (x,t) dx =K (-\Psi_6 (x,t) + \Psi_4 (x,t)- \Psi_2 (x,t)) K (-*\Psi_6 (x,t) + *\Psi_4 (x,t)- *\Psi_2 (x,t))=3k^2[/tex]

this means that this finction does predict that a particle is somehere in the box

if this function has time dependent average energy:

[tex]\frac{E_6 + E_4 + E_2}{3}[/tex]

right? my friend said that the energy cant be found, but isnt this the average energy?
