- This computer visualization activity is designed to help students to visualize the probability density of a particle confined to a ring.
- Students use Maple or Mathematica to calculate the probability density from the particle's wavefunction, visualize linear combinations of eigenstates, and animate how the probability density changes with time.
- The entire class wrap-up discussion focuses on sharing three equivalent representations of the probability density and shows students how to move between the different representations.
