Homework Help: Wavefunction problem help

  1. Jun 20, 2005 #1
    Consider the wavefunction

    psi = Ae^i(kx+wt) ;w = omega

    where k is real and w(omega) > 0 and is real. Is this wavefunction an admissible quantum state for a free particle?. Justify your answer is no, in what manner would you change the given function to describe a free particle moving in the -x direction?.
