Unformatted text preview: b) Explain your answer: ©2010 Steve Pollock, Steve Goldhaber and the Physics Education Group University of Colorado at Boulder The next two questions refer to the normalized wave function, Ψ ( x , t = 0) , which is shown at the right. Q3: a) What, if anything, can we say about <x>? A. It must be zero. B. It must be positive. C. It depends on the size of the peaks. D. It is not well defined because the wave function is not always positive. b) Explain your answer: Q4: a) What, if anything, can we say about the standard deviation of x, σ x ? A. It is exactly zero. B. It must be less than 1. C. It must be greater than 1. D.
