Time dependent schrodinger equation and wave function

  1. Sep 9, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    p: momentum
    x: position
    t: time
    h_bar: planck's constant
    Ψ: wave function
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I've posted a link to pictures. http://imgur.com/a/TKvUu [Broken]
    I'm not vera good at using LaTex yet :(
    So I've shown that the wave equation satisfied the schrödinger equation, but I'm not sure how to find which A(p) will also satisfy the schrodinger equation? Any pointers?

    No picture appears. You do not necessarily need to know or use LaTeX (although you should learn to do so); just typing it in text is OK, if you use, say, x^2 for ##x^2##, etc., You also need to be careful to use parentheses, so that you can distinguish between ##\frac{a}{bc}## and ##\frac{a}{b} c## (so, write a/(bc) for the first and (a/b)c for the second---rather than a/bc, which could mean either).

    Updated, thanks. Is it okay to post pictures of my work to show my attempt?

    I would never, ever, look at work that requires me to apply for membership to a website in order to view the images. Either upload it directly to PF from your own computer (as an attachment, for example) or type it out.
