Unformatted text preview: 2010 Steve Goldhaber and the Physics Education Group University of Colorado at Boulder Q2a: The figure to the right shows a potential well where V(X)=0 for 0<x<a and V(X)=V 1 everywhere else. We want to place an electron in this well in its ground state (lowest energy eigenstate). What can you say about the energy of this electron as the value, V 1 , increases? A. The electrons energy will increase B. The electrons energy will decrease C. The electrons energy will remain the same D. There is not enough information E. It depends on the position where you measure the energy Q2b: Briefly explain your reasoning 2010 Steve Goldhaber and the Physics Education Group University of Colorado at Boulder...
