What is the average momentum? What is the average kinetic energy? What is the average total energy? Potential energy the physical situation Potential Energy and width of a quantum well Potential Energy and width of a barrier The electron in the quantum well The electron in, yes in, the barrier Finite potential well examples Finite potential barrier examples Energy levels in the infinite potential well Pr. 2.12: Chp. 03 preview: the outermost bonding electrons Lecture 15: Chp. 02: Nanosystems Quantized energy levels: Atomic spectra Wavelike electrons: DavissonGermer Particlelike photons: Photoelectric effect Wavelike electrons+Unceratinty Principle: What is the average position?
