Unformatted text preview: dt moving from the point x to x + dx. Show that the probability of finding the particle in the interval [x,x+dx] during an arbitrary time interval [t,t + dt] is given by: 2 / 1 2 2 ) ( x a dx-π What is the probability for finding the particle at x>a (in quantum mechanics, this probability is not zero)? At what point is the probability of finding the particle least? Does this make sense? Discuss....
