for a symmetrical potential with one electron, i know that the wavefunctions are symmetric or antisymmetric. for the ground state why is the wavefunction symmetric?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Also, if you add a second electron that is non-interacting, (why) does it have the same wavefunction as the first electron?
