The length of the box is about 1.3Å . Since the electron extends beyond the carbon we take the box to be a liale larger ~ 2Å. 11 Transi1on from ground state to ﬁrst excited state √(2/L) Sin(2πx/L) 2π 2 2 E= 2 2 mL2 n=2 n=1 √(2/L) Sin(πx/L) 2π 2 2 E= 1 2 mL2 12 The excita1on energy from ground to excited state ΔE = E2 − E1 2π 2 2 2 3 2π 2 2 −1 = 2 2 mL 2 mL2 ( 3 ⋅ (10 −34 2 ⋅ 9.11 ⋅ 10 ) Js ) ⋅ ( 3.141) kg ⋅ ( 3 ⋅ 10 m ) 2 −31 2 −10 2 = 1.8 ⋅ 10 −18 J To estimate the wavelength we use ΔE = hv = hc / λ λ = hc / ΔE = 6.6 ⋅ 10 −34 Js ⋅ 2.998 ⋅ 10 8 ms −1 / 1.8 ⋅ 10 −18 J λ = 1.10 ⋅ 10 −7 m = 110 nm The experimental number is 170nm.
