Here Ψ II =A at x=0 and II =B at x=L , so both sin and cos are possible. Match wave functions and its derivatives at x=0 and x=L ; 4 eqs., 4 unkowns. The matching occurs for discrete values of particle energy, E .

    • The wave function penetrates the walls, which lowers the energy levels relative to the infinite square well. • The wavelengths are longer, the corresponding particle momenta are lower.

    6.5: Three-Dimensional Infinite-Potential Well Degeneracy Analysis of the Schrödinger wave equation in three dimensions introduces three quantum numbers that quantize the energy. A quantum state is degenerate when there is more than one wave function for a given energy. Degeneracy results from particular properties of the potential energy
