From Q.M. [math]j = \frac{\hbar}{2mi}(\psi^* \frac{\partial \psi}{\partial X} - \psi \frac{\partial \psi^*}{\partial X}) =[/math] particle current density

This comes from the continuity equation

[math]\frac{\partial \ro}{\partial t} + \vec{\nabla} \cdot \vec{J} = 0[/math]

Time dependent Shrodinger equation \Longrightarrow

[math]\frac{\partial \psi}{\partial t} = -\frac{i}{\hbar} H \psi[/math]
[math]\frac{\partial \psi^*}{\partial t} = \frac{i}{\hbar} H \psi^*[/math]

[math]\frac{\partial}{\partial t}\psi^* \psi =[/math] time derivative of the particle density

[math]\psi^* \frac{\partial \psi}{\partial t} + \psi \frac{\partial \psi^*}{\partial t}[/math]
[math]\psi^* (-\frac{iH}{\hbar}\psi) + \psi (\frac{iH}{\hbar} \psi^*)[/math]
[math]\frac{\partial \psi^* \psi}{\partial t} + \frac{i}{\hbar} [ \psi^* H \psi - \psi H \psi^*] = 0[/math]

If free particle [math]H = \frac{p^2}{2m} = - \frac{\hbar^2}{2m} \frac{\partial^2}{\partial X^2}[/math]

[math]\frac{\partial \psi^* \psi}{\partial t} + \frac{i}{\hbar} [ \psi^* (- \frac{\hbar^2}{2m}) \frac{\partial^2 \psi}{\partial X^2} - \psi (-\frac{\hbar^2}{2m})\frac{\partial^2 \psi}{\partial X^2} ] = 0[/math]
[math]\frac{\partial \psi^* \psi}{\partial t} - \frac{i\hbar}{2m} [ \frac{\partial}{\partial X} (\psi^* \frac{\partial \psi}{\partial X} - \psi \frac{\partial \psi^*}{\partial X}) ] = 0[/math]

Check: [math]\frac{\partial}{\partial X} (\psi^* \frac{\partial \psi}{\partial X} - \psi \frac{\partial \psi^*}{\partial X}) = \frac{\partial \psi^*}{\partial X} \frac{\partial \psi}{\partial X} + \psi^*\frac{\partial^2 \psi}{\partial X^2} - \frac{\partial \psi}{\partial X} \frac{\partial \psi^*}{\partial X} - \psi \frac{\partial^2 \psi^*}{\partial X^2}[/math]

[math]\frac{\partial \psi^* \psi}{\partial t} + \frac{\hbar}{2m i} [ \frac{\partial}{\partial X} (\psi^* \frac{\partial \psi}{\partial X} - \psi \frac{\partial \psi^*}{\partial X}) ] = 0[/math]
