    In a one-dimensional problem, consider a particle of potential energy V(X) = -fX, where f is a positive constant [V(X) arises, for example, from a gravity field or a uniform electric field].
    a. Write Ehrenfest's theorem for the mean values of the position X and the momentum P of the particle. Integrate these equations, compare with the classical motion.
