Problem 10.6: Determine the components of a superposition
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
The wave function shown in the upper right-hand graph, is for a particle in an infinite square well of length L = 1. You may import a function, f(x) and check the overlap integral with the wave function. In the animation, ħ = 2m = 1. Restart.
- The state is not normalized. Normalize the state and report the properly normalized wave function.
- How much of the total wave function is in each individual energy eigenfunction? Report as a fraction.
