Question

which condition id sufficient to ensure that a wave function is an energy eigenfunction?

a. the wave function is normalizable

b. the wave function satosfoes the time independent schrodinger equation

Answer #1

A wave function to be an energy eigenfunction must satisfy the time independent Schrödinger equation.

This is the difference between an eigenfunction and a wave function. If an operator operated on a wave function gives the same wave function then that wave function will be an eigenfunction.That's why all eigen functions are wavefunctions but not the vice versa.

Schrödinger's equation consists of two operators- potential and kinetic energy operator.So an eigenfunction will satisfy it.

And the result obtained will be an energy eigen value..

Which statement A–D about the wave function for a single
electron is not correct? a. A French graduate student named Louis
de Broglie first had the idea that an electron should be described
as a wave. b. Since nl = c, an expression for the wavelength of an
electron can be found by combining Einstein’s equation that relates
mass and energy (E = mc2) with his equation that gives the energy
of a photon in terms of its frequency (E...

1. Before reaching the double slit, the electron is described by
the time-dependent Schrödinger equation (TDSE) for a freely moving
particle. Starting with the time- independent Schrödinger equation
(TISE), use separation of variables of the wave- function and the
quantum energy relation to get the TDSE for a free particle.
