1D Quantum Simple Harmonic Oscillator

1D Quantum Simple Harmonic Oscillator

This visualization shows the energy eigenfunctions and probability density for a quantum particle confined to a simple harmonic oscillator potential. The user can choose the quantum number and overlay the classical probability density, classical turning points and energy. A "step-by-step exploration" tab explains the key points. The animation can be downloaded. Instructors can email for the password for the instructor resources.
