Problem 8.1: Write expressions for the three wave functions
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
These animations show the real (blue) and imaginary (pink) parts of three time-dependent energy eigenfunctions. Assume x is measured in cm and time is measured in seconds.
- Write an expression for each of the three time-dependent energy eigenfunctions in the form: ei(kx-wt).
- What is the mass of the particle?
- What would the mass of the particle be if time was being shown in ms?
