Main Document

Free Particle Eigenstates 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The Free Particle Energy Eigenstates model shows the time evolution of a superpostion of free particle energy eigenstates.  A table shows the energy, momentum, and amplitude of each eigenstate.

The Free Particle Energy Eigenstates model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Download and then double the ejs_qm_FreeParticleEigenstates.jar file to run this program if Java is installed.
