# Is Sin x an acceptable wave function ?

OR## Wave function Ψ = Sin x is defined in the range of variables x = 0 to x = π

a. is it an acceptable wave function ?

b. is it normalized ? If not what is normalization factor?

a. Ψ = Sin x is an acceptable wave function because it is a single valued, continuous and finite what so ever be the value of x.

b. Ψ = Sin x is not a normalized wave function.

It is not equal to one which is essential condition for normalization.

In order to normalise it, let N be the normalization factor. Then-
