Physics IV Homework Problem Due 3/23/01 Consider the possible existence of bound states of a particle in the potential shown above using the Schroedinger equation. 1. What form of solution is appropriate inside the well given that U 0 <E<0 and the boundary condition at x=0? 2. What form of solution is appropriate outside the well given that U 0 <E<0 and the boundary condition at large values of x (for a bound state)?

Unformatted text preview: 3. Use continuity conditions to determine the condition for energy levels in this potential. 4. What is the relation between the solutions of this problem and the solutions of the finite potential well that we did in class? 5. How can the uncertainty relation be used to determine if a potential well (like the one shown above) is deep enough and wide enough to have a bound state?...
