Problem 8.2: Rank the wave functions according to momentum and energy.

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

These animations show four time-dependent energy eigenfunctions in color-as-phase representation.  Assume x is measured in cm and time is measured in seconds.

  1. Rank free-particle time-dependent energy eigenfunctions 1 through 4 in order of momentum.
  2. Rank free-particle time-dependent energy eigenfunctions 1 through 4 in order of energy.

Ties in parenthesis please!
