Problem 12.4: A particle is confined to a box with an added unknown potential energy function
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
A particle is confined to a box with hard walls at x = −3 and x = 3 and an unknown potential energy function is added within the box. Change the energy slider and examine the solutions to the time-independent Schrödinger equation for this system. Examine each energy eigenfunction and sketch a potential energy function that is consistent with your observations.
