Classically, particles seek configurations of least potential energy. Something like this happens in QM: the wavefunction will usually be densest in those areas the potential energy is smallest. But looking at the Schrodinger equation itself, I can't see intuitively why this should be.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
