    A particle with mass m is in a one dimensional simple harmonic oscillator potential. At time t=0 it is described by the state
    Ï?=b|Ï?_0+c|Ï?_1

    Where Ï?_0 and Ï?_1 are normalised energy eigenfunctions corresponding to energies E_0 and E_1 and b and c are real constants.

    Find b and c that (x)-(expectation value) is as large as possible.
