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.

  1. Write an expression for each of the three time-dependent energy eigenfunctions in the form:  ei(kx-wt).
  2. What is the mass of the particle?
  3. What would the mass of the particle be if time was being shown in ms?
