My text book says(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ψ(x,t)=exp(i(p[itex]_{0}[/itex]x[itex]^{0}[/itex] + p[itex]^{→}[/itex][itex]\cdot[/itex]x[itex]^{→}[/itex])/h)=exp(i*p[itex]\cdot[/itex]x/h)

(note that by h I mean 'h-bar'...couldn't find the symbol).

I don't recognize (like my text implies I should) how the first equation equals the second. Where did the p[itex]_{0}[/itex]x[itex]^{0}[/itex] go? Sorry for my stupidity here. Any hints appreciated. Thanks.
