78. (a) Since pp p p xy x y == = = 00 , . Thus from Eq. 38-20 both x and y are infinite. It is therefore impossible to assign a y or z coordinate to the position of an electron. (b) Since it is independent of y and z the wave function Ψ ( x ) should describe a plane wave that extends infinitely in both the
