Unformatted text preview: ( ) x p . Now con-sider the eigenvalue problem for position states in the momentum representation, ( ) ( ) x x x p x p = . Show that this eigenvalue relation is satisfied if the position operator has the form x i p = h . Further, by operating on an arbitrary wavefunction ( ) p , show that this choice produces the fa-miliar result for the position-momentum commutator, [ , ] x p i = h ....
