Because the lattice has a translation symmetry (like the rotation,
reflection, exchange symmetries we already saw), you can say
something about the wave functions.

The essence of a Lab Investigation is that variables are identified and, to the degree possible, controlled; which
means kept the same. Controlling one variable allows scientists to isolate a variable
