can someone help me with this question please (i'm finding it hard to focus with my poor back...cursed rowing!!!):
I need to show that for an oscillator that it's probability that it is found in a region of space: x -> x+dx is given by:
p(x)dx = |dx|/Tv(x)
where T = time period of oscillation and v I presume is the velocity function
And then I must calculate the probability distribution p(x) (as above) for an oscillator with potential energy = .5ax^2
argh my back...anyone a physio by any chance?
