Unformatted text preview: en Ey1 and Ez1 are each 100 times larger than Ex1 . So the one-dimensional ground state energy Ex1 is smaller than the true ground state energy E111 = Ex1 + Ey1 + Ez1 by a factor 201. Which means it is off by 20,000%. 3.5.8.2 Solution pipeg-b Question: At what ratio of ℓy /ℓx does the energy E121 become higher than the energy E311 ?
