Hi there!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If I have an electron in the spin state |+> and I rotate it by an angle of 360°, then the state becomes -|+>. Now, if I want to find the probability of measuring the spin up, I have:

P(|+>)=<+|(-|+>)=-1

So after a rotation of 360° I have a negative probability??
