Unformatted text preview: [1](a) Please calculate x , the uncertainty in position x, for a particle (mass m ) in a 1D box with length L at n=2 eigenstate. Please show algebraic details; do not just plug the numbers into the formula on p. 91. [1](b) Same as [1](a), but please calculate p , the uncertainty in linear momentum p. Please show algebraic details; do not just plug the numbers into the formula on p. 91. [1](c) Based on your answers [1](a) and [1](b), please calculate the uncertainty product x p . Is your result consistent with Heisenbergs Uncertainty Principle x p /2 ?...
