1. This small group activity is designed to help students find probability amplitudes of superposition states for a particle confined to a ring.
  2. Students work in small groups to calculate the probability for angular momentum, energy, and position of a specific superposition state for particle on a ring.
  3. The entire class wrap-up discussion stresses that breaking up a given wavefunction into a superposition of eigenstates is most beneficial in these types calculations.
