Physics H133: Problem Set #6

Here are some hints, suggestions, and comments on the problem set.

Two-Minute Problems

Remember to give a good explanation, no longer than two sentences.

  1. Q6T.5: What determines the probability of finding the quanton at a given position?
  2. Q6T.9: For a free particle with well-defined momentum (or wave length), what can we say about the probability to find the particle at a given point? Are there any positions more likely than others? So if we measure a definite position (i.e. the quanton's state collapses to a position eigenstate), can the momentum be still well-defined?
