Wavefunction normalization, probability
A particle is described by the wavefunction
¦×(x) = A Cos (2¦Ðx/L) for -L/4 ¡Ü x ¡Ü L/4
(a) Determine the normalization constant A.
(b) What is the probability that the particle will be found between x = 0 and x = L/8 if a measurement of its position is made?
In our case this becomes:
Thus, equation (1.2) becomes:
