Description:

This animation shows the quantum analogy of a classical bouncing ball moving in a gravitational field, without dissipation. The video shows the wave packet motion next to the ball. A graph of the expectation value of the quantum ball versus time is provided that illustrates the dispersion and later reforming of the quantum wave packet.
