# Answer to Question #38473 in Quantum Mechanics for sebastian hoffmann

Question #38473
Hi,

I am thinking for some hours about the commutation of the field-Operator/(annihilation-Operator): $\Psi$ and the vector-potential: $\vec{A(\vec{r})}$.

I have noticed in my lecture notes that $\vec{A(\vec{r})}\Psi = \Psi\vec{A(\vec{r})}$.

But I don't understand why they commute?
Expert's answer
Vector-potential is not a differential operator. Thus, multiplication of vector and scalar values commutes as in linear algebra (commutative property of multiplication of vector and scalar).
