Kinetic and potential energy densities in the quantum simple harmonic oscillator

Kinetic and potential energy densities in the quantum simple harmonic oscillator

This visualization shows the kinetic and potential energy densities for a quantum particle confined to a 1D harmonic oscillator potential. The user can choose the quantum number of the energy eigenstate and overlay the classical kinetic and potential energy densities. A "step-by-step exploration" tab explains the key points. The animation can be downloaded.
