The quantity on the right-hand side is positive, so k is real and the proposed function satisfies Schrödinger’s equation. If k is negative, however, the proposed function would be physically unrealistic. It would increase exponentially with x . Since the integral of the probability density over the entire x axis must be finite, ψ diverging as x →∞ would be unacceptable. Therefore, we choose k h mU E =− > 2 20 0 π bg . 57.
