regarding the Physlet:
These animations show the real (red) and imaginary (green) parts of three wave
functions. Assume x is measured in cm and time is measured in
- Write the de Broglie wave function for the three wave functions in
the form: exp[i(kx-wt)]
- What is the mass of the particle?
- What would the mass of the
particle be if time was being shown in ms?
