Any mistakes in my derivation?

It seems you wrote \(P\) when you meant \(K\) (\(K = -\frac{\hbar^2}{2m} \nabla^2?\))?

Other than that it's fine, though I don't think this is a "derivation". Unless you can argue from first principles that the representation for momentum should be given by \(-i\hbar\nabla\), it is just a declaration and some substituting. Brilliant Physics Staff · 10 months, 2 weeks ago
