Description:

This resource discusses the meaning of quantum wavefunctions in terms of measurement probabilities. The double-slit experiment is used to motivate the concept of probabilistic measurements. A shockwave applet is then used to allow students to explore the relationship between a 1D wavefunction and probabilities. Both the magnitude of the probability density and the probability in a finite interval in position can be displayed.
