## Homework Statement

Consider a particle in a superposition of states given at time t=0 by Y(x,0)=C(y

_{1}(x)+y

_{2}(x)), where y1(x) and y2(x) are the stationary states with energies E1 and E2 respectively. if y1(x) and y2(x) are orthonormalized, what value of C is required to normalize Y(x,0)?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

the orthonormalization is messing with my head, there is an example of normalizing wavefunctions in my book but this looks nothing like it. I am not sure of how to approach this problem.
