if we have the particle ins free its hamiltonian has a continuous spectrum of eigen enegies and superposition of arbitrary initial state in eigenstates φ_k of H( hamiltonian oprator) becomes ∫_(-∞)^∞▒〖b(k) φ_k dk〗,what is the dimemension of b(k) (lb(k)l^2 is a probability density)? where k is wave nomber.

2. Relevant equationsquantum mechanics by liboff chapter 5

3. The attempt at a solutionlb(k)l^2 dimensions is 1/k because ∫_(-∞)^∞▒〖b(k)^2dk〗=1
