The probability that the particle is between x = 0 and x = L /4, is given by the integral: [ ] π π π π π π π π π π ψ 2 1 4 1 2 sin 2 1 4 1 0 4 2 sin 2 1 0 4 1 ) 4 / 0 ( 2 sin 2 1 1 2 cos 1 1 ) 4 / 0 ( 2 cos 1 2 1 2 sin 2 ) 4 / 0 ( 4 / 0 4 / 0 4 / 0 4 / 0 4 / 0 4 / 0 2 4 / 0 2 - = - = - - - = < < - = - = < < - = = = < < L L L x P L x L L x L dx L x L dx L L x P dx L x L dx L x L dx L x P L L L L L L L P (0 < x < L /4) = 0.091 b) Rather than repeat the integral for each area, it is instructive to look at a graph of ψ ² as a function of x . The graph below shows the three areas.

It is apparent, from the symmetry, that the P (0 < x < L /4) = P (3 L /4 < x < L ). Since The probability of finding the particle somewhere in the well is equal to one, we must

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
