Momentum operator
One dimension in
position representation
:
$p^ =−iℏ∂x∂ $
(1)
In three dimensions In position representation, we define it by using the
gradient
, and so we see that
$p^ =−iℏ∂x∂ $

. Proves in detail why the
momentum operator
is
$∂x∂ $
. The starting point is determining the time
derivative
of the
expectation value
of the
position operator
.
