Is  Ψ(x) an eigenfunction of the free-particle Hamiltonian?

C.  Can the energy for a quantum mechanical free particle ever be "well-defined"?  Why or why not?

D.  Compute the expectation (average) value of < H >, < p >, and < x > for the Ψ(x) given.

E.  What is the uncertainty in total energy as a function of the parameter, σx?
