Consider a particle in a superposition of states given at time t=0 by Y(x,0)=C(y1(x)+y2(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)?
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.
