ü Problem 2.3.2 (d) The eigenvalue problem we need to address is (1) d 2 f d x 2 + l f = 0 BC1: f H 0 L = 0 BC2: d f d x H L L = 0 The general solution will depend on the sign of l : (i) l > 0 (2) f H x L = C 1 Cos I è!!! l x M + C 2 Sin I è!!! l x M Applying the BCs we find (3) f H 0 L = C 1 = 0 d f dx H L L = 0 = C 2 è!!! l Cos I è!!! l L M Thus (4) è!!! l L = H n + 1 2 L p , n = 0, 1, 2. .. Thus for l > 0 the eigenfunctions are (5) f n H x L = Sin I è!!! l x M = Sin @H n + 1 2 L p L x D (ii) For l = 0 we have a general solution (6) f H x L = C 1 x + C 2 Application of the BCs give (7) C 2 = 0, C 1 = 0 Thus
