(b) write down the values of x at which the probability of finding the particle is greatest for each of these 2 states. (c) Use these wave functions to calculate the average values of p, <p> and of p 2 , < p 2 > for each of these states. and hence p which is [< p 2 > -<p> 2 ] 1/2 for each of these states, where p is the momentum of the particle. (15 pts) 2. Show that the function !
