In a previous paper, fundamental equations of quantum mechanics have been established in time-varying domain. It turns out that these equations are the generalization of those of usual quantum mechanics established in stationary space-time. This present work attempts to draw consequences and effects of the nonstationary space-time domain on observables by analyzing these equations. The main theoretical findings from this analysis can be summed as follows: A pseudocovariance of equations is observed. It can be seen that the functional wave function associated to the particle possesses a dynamical modal nature; each mode has an instantaneous wave number. Moreover, observables are subjected to space-time effects. As an illustration, we give an example corresponding to a linear motion increasing or decreasing the domain.
