Hallo,

Why can we assume (in the case of simple harmonic occilator)

that at the maximum momentum ,pmax, we can

evluate pmax=[tex]\Delta[/tex]p?

Thanks,
Omri

I don't think you can, unless there's something more to the problem (for instance, if there's some randomness in the phase of the oscillator).
