B. DeMarco PHYSICS 485 Fall 2008 Problem Set #5—due Thursday, October 9 1. Consider an electron in the finite square well potential shown. (a) How many bound energy levels will there be? (b) Find the energy of the bound states and sketch their wavefunctions. (You will have to solve a transcendental equation, which you can do graphically, numerically, or by guessing iteratively). (c) Sketch the wavefunction for E = 2 meV.
