the wave function descrbing a state of an electron confined to move along the xaxis is given at time zero by:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\Psi(x,0)=Ae^{\frac{-x^2}{4 \sigma^2}}[/tex]

where sigma is a constant (i believe).

I am asked to find the probability of finding the electron in a degion dx centered at x=0.

I really dont know where to being since the wave function isnt in complex form so I cant multiply it by its complex conjugate. what should I do?
