Unformatted text preview: Figure 11.2: The probability to find a certain value of for the first two Harmonic oscillator wave functions. These probabilities are sketched in Fig. 11.2 . The peaks are of some interest, since they show where the electrons are most likely to be found. Let's investigate this mathematically: (11.24) if we differentiate with respect to , we get (11.25) This is zero at . For the first excited state this gets a little more complicated, and we will have to work harder to find the answer....
