Your work is fine up to here:## Homework Statement

Show that the time-dependent Schrodinger equation is separable when V depends on time only and is uniform in space (i.e., V = V (t)).

[tex]-\frac{\hbar^2}{2m}\frac{\partial^2\psi}{\partial x^2}=E\psi[/tex]

[tex]i\hbar\frac{1}{\Theta}\frac{\partial \Theta}{\partial t}-V(t)=E[/tex]

You made a simple algebra mistake in the next step of the theta equation. Your attempts to solve the differential equations are seriously misguided. These are pretty basic differential equations. You should review how to solve them.
