W $2.: .23 Exercise 8.2 Write the Schrodinger equation for a particie moving in 1 dimension potential well of width L (La, box of length L) and express the corresponding normalized wavefunction as function of an
integer number n. Can n take any value? (1) Calculate the probability that the particle will be found between 0 and 0.01L in a box of
length L when it has: (a) n21, (b) n=2, (c) n=4 (2) Calculate the probability that the particle will be found between 0.65L and 0.67L in a box of
length L when it has: (3) n=1, (b) n=2, (c) n=4 Hint: Consider the wavefunction to be constant over these narrow windows. ...
