Compute the expectation value of the energy of the ground-state wavefunction assuming as an
approximation that the wavefunction is the same as in the flat box, ( ). Hint:Use trigonometric
identities to simplify the integral. 〈〉 ∫ ̂ (̂ ∫ ̂ ∫ ) ∫ ∫ ∫ ( ) ∫

under the assumption that the wavefunction is not affected)....
