Hi, I'm not sure this is the correct topic for this question, but I shall ask anyway.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've been set this question for homework and I'm not too sure where to start.

Find N so that the state |U> with Schrodinger position representation wavefunction U(x) = N exp(-((x-y)^2)/2a^2) is normalised, where a and y are real constants.

Hopefully from there I will be able to do the rest of the question.
