Free Particle Pretest Name: _______________________________________ CU ID: ____________________ For each of the questions below, you are given a plot of a wave function and are asked if this is a physically possible wave function for a particle confined to a one-dimensional infinite square as well as shown at right. Q1: a) Is this wave function physically possible for a particle confined to the infinite square well potential above? A. Definitely yes. B. It depends (specify below) C. No, this is not an allowed wave function b) Explain your answer. That is, explain how you know whether or not the wave function is allowed. If you answered ‘It depends,’ describe under which conditions the wave function is physically allowed: ©2010 Steve Goldhaber and the Physics Education Group University of Colorado at Boulder
