## Problem 11.3: Determine the energy bands and gaps for a periodic potential

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

Shown in the graph is the transcendental equation describing the bound-state energy levels of a series of finite square wells. The teal lines represent the range of one side of the equation and the red curve represents the other side of the equation. **In the animation, ħ = 2m = 1. **What are the allowed energies for the system represented by this transcendental equation?
