A particle is in a one-dimensional box of length a=1. The states shown are normalized. Shown are Psi and the results of the integrals that give <p> and <p2>. The results are given in terms of hbar and ( hbar)2, respectively. Vary n from 1 to 10.
a. What do you notice about the values of <p> and <p2> as you vary n?
b. For n = 1, what is Dp?
c. If the mass of the particle is m, what is the <En> as as a function of n?
