Momentum probability densities

Logo for Momentum probability densities
This visualization shows the spatial and momentum probability densities for a quantum particle confined to a 1D infinite square well potential. The user can choose the quantum number of the energy eigenstate and overlay the classical spatial and momentum probability densities. A "step-by-step exploration" tab explains the key points. The animation can be downloaded.
