[ Print View ] Physics 228 Spring 2008 Wave Function and Schroedinger Equation Due at 11:59pm on Wednesday, April 2, 2008 View Grading Details Finding Probabilities from the Wave Function Learning Goal: To use the wave function for a particle in a box to calculate the probability that the particle is found in various regions within the box. The quantum mechanical probability that a particle described by the (normalized) wave function is found in the region between and is . The specific example of a particle trapped in an infinitely deep potential well, sometimes called a particle in a box, serves as good practice for calculating these probabilities, because the wave functions for this situation are easy to write down. If the ends of the box are at and , then the allowed wave functions are where is the ground-state wave function, is the first excited state, etc. Here are a few integrals that may prove useful: z , z , z , and z .
