ChemistryPhysical ChemistryConsider the same particle in the same box as in the previous problem, but the (unnormalized) wavefunction is different. Now, assume Ψ = k x , where the value of the wavefunction is directly proportional to the distance across the box. Evaluate the same two probabilities, and comment on the differences between the probabilities in this case and the previous one.BuyFind*launch*
