Unformatted text preview: as you know it. 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. 〈〉 ∫ ̂ (̂ ∫ ̂ ∫ ) ∫ ∫ ∫ ( ) ∫ ∫ ( ( [ ) ( ( ( ) ) ) ( ( ) ) )| The potential perturbation does not change the ground state energy compared to the flat box case. (This is under the assumption that the wavefunction is not affected)....
