ChemistryPhysical ChemistryA particle on a ring has a wavefunction Ψ = e i m ϕ , where ϕ = 0 to 2 π and m is a constant. (a) Normalize the wavefunction, where d τ is d ϕ . How does the normalization constant depend on the constant m ? (b) What is the probability that the particle is in the ring indicated by the angular range ϕ = 0 to 2 π / 3 ? Does this answer make sense? How does the probability depend on constant m ?BuyFind*launch*
