We get A 2 Z a dx ( x a ) 2 x 2 = A 2 &quot; x 5 5 ax 4 2 + a 2 x 3 3 # a = A 2 a 5 30 = 1 So A = q 30 /a 5 . If we interpret   2 to be the neutron density, we should multiply A by 1000. Lets stick with the first. (b) Since is symmetric about x = a/ 2, half the neutrons must be between 0 and a/ 2. 500. (c) Find h 5  i : s 2 a A Z a dxx ( x a )sin 5 x a = s 60 a 6 &quot; 2 x (5 /a ) 2 sin 5 x a + 2 (5 /a ) 3 x 2 5 /a ! cos 5 x a a (5 /a ) 2 sin 5 x a + ax 5 /a cos 5 x a # a = 8 15 (5 ) 3 For the probability, P (5) = h 5  i 2 = 6 . 4 10 5 For 1000 particles, this still means 6 . 4 10 2 . (d) Using H = h 2 2 m 2 x 2 , h E i = h 2 A 2 2 m Z a dx ( x 2 ax ) 2 x 2 ( x 2 ax ) = 30 h 2 ma 5 a 3 3 a 3 2 !...
