Quantum Wave Function (Determine V(x,t))

  1. Sep 8, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A particle is moving in one dimension in a potential V(x,t). The wave function for the particle is.... and then the equation is given..

    Show that V is independent of t, and determine V(x).

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I don't know where to start? How do I go about showing that an explicitly given wave function has a potential independent of time?

    you know Schrodingers equation right? that is an equation involving the wavefunction and the potential (hint, hint)
