Hi everyone,

This is my first time posting, and I really need some help. I'm doing a project on Schrodinger's cat, concentrating on superposition and the linearity of operators.

I have this equation: |\psi\rangle = {3\over 5} i |A\rangle + {4\over 5} |B\rangle

but I don't know what amounts to plug in for A and B, as well as what amount the imaginary number represents, if anything.

2. Relevant equations

|\psi\rangle = {3\over 5} i |A\rangle + {4\over 5} |B\rangle

3. The attempt at a solution

I think I understand what the equation is saying, that if a particle can be at A and B, it can also be 3/5i in position A and 4/5 in position B. But beyond that, I don't know what step to take next.

Any input would be extremely helpful

thanks!
