We apply the linear momentum operator to each of the given functions:
So, (A) and (B) are not even eigenfunctions of the linear momentum operator. (C), (D), and (E) are all eigenfunctions of the linear momentum operator, but the eigenvalue of (C) is and the eigenvalue of (E) is . The eigenvalue of (D) is , so the correct answer is (D). |
