hello im just starting some revition for my exams and havr come across this wave funchion and i dont no how to normerlise it i realy need some help with this.

it is the wave function symbol (x) = -Ae^(σx^2/x^2)

what i need to know is how to intergrate it to find a value for A to see if the function can be normerlised

p.s im dyslikeix and this thing dosen't have a spell check if u need any info plz ask and ill do my best

thanks

Are you saying that the wave function you need to normalize is:

$$\psi (x) = -A e^{\frac{\sigma x^2}{x^2}}$$

If so, then it shouldn't be that hard to normalize, since the x^2's in the exponent cancel, leaving just a constant function. Are you sure this is the function, or is there a typo in your above post?

sorry its A(e^(sigma)x^2)/x^2 that was a typo is that better ?
