Review of the Particle Wave Function - Electricity, Magnetism, Optics and Quantum Mechanics - Fundamentals of Physics - Ramamurti Shankar - Lecture 21 of 25 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, Advanced Physics

Description: The fact that the wave function provides the complete description of a particle's location and momentum is emphasized. Measurement collapses the wave function into a spike located at the measured value. The quantization of momentum for a particle on a ring is deduced.
