The Momentum Space package is a self-contained file for the teaching of the time evolution and visualization of energy eigenstates and their superpositions via momentum space in quantum mechanics. The file contains ready-to-run OSP programs and a set of curricular materials. The material focuses on the wave function in both position and momentum space. The Momentum Space package is an Open Source Physics curricular package written for the teaching of quantum mechanics. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the osp_p_space.jar file will run the package if Java is installed. Other quantum mechanics packages are also available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Quantum Mechanics.
