Unformatted text preview: are greater than zero when squared.) Problem 3 – Q6T.7 ; Q6T.8 The wavefunction and its square are shown below. Note that the total area under the squared wavefunction is 12 (little squares), which corresponds to a probability of unity. ! (x) x 1  ! (x)  2 x Area = 12 1 Q6T.7 E: If the measurement result yields x > 1 nm, this corresponds to the (darker) shaded area under the squared wavefunction, which has an area of 5 (little squares). Since the total area is 12, the corresponding probability is 5/12. Q6T.8 D: If the measurement result yields2 nm < x < 0 nm, this corresponds to the (lighter) shaded area under the squared wavefunction, which has an area of 2 (little squares). Again, since the total area is 12, the corresponding probability is 2/12 = 1/6. 1...
