A particle is in a one-dimensional box of length a=1. The states shown are normalized. Shown are Psi* x Psi and Psi* x2 Psi and the results of the integrals that give <x> and <x2>. Vary n from 1 to 10.
a. What do you notice about the values of <x> and <x2> as you vary n?
b. For n = 1, what is Dx?
c. What do you think <x> and <x2> should become in the classical limit? Why?
