I The hamiltonian operator

  1. Mar 28, 2016 #1
    I came across a previous exam question which stated: Do all physical states, ψ, abide to Hψ = Eψ. I thought about it for a while, but I'm not really sure.

    Not all, only eigenstates of the (time-independent) Hamiltonian satisfy that equation.
