2 Problem 1 (25 points) An electron is restricted to be in the positive x direction 0 x ≤ ∞ under the influence of some potential energy function which is infinite at x = 0. i . Although all the functions given below are finite, single-valued, continues with continues 1 st derivatives, only one of them is an acceptable wave function for this system. ( N is the normalization constant) Which one? Explain! (1) ψ ( x ) = N cos x ; (2) ψ ( x ) = Nxe x 2 ; (3) ψ ( x ) = Ne x 2 . (5 points) Because of the infinite jump in potential energy at x = 0, ψ (0) must be zero and only function (2) satisfy this condition.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
