Hi. I'm trying to study the very basics of quantum physics and I ran into a problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Does a free particle which is at zero potential wavefunction have some points where it's zero? So the probability of finding it would be zero? I know there is if the region has boundaries like in infinite square well example, but if there isnt any boundaries?

Does the uncertainty principle say something about this (because the momentum is definite??) and I just dont see it?
