Energy Eingenvalues with slider.

Bound Particle Energy Eigenstates and Potential Energy

Energy =

Potential 1 Potential 2 Potential 3 Potential 4

Description

A particle is confined to a box with hard walls at x = -3 and x = 3 and an unknown potential energy function within the box.  Change the energy slider and examine the solutions to the Schroedinger equation for this system.

Questions

  1. Examine each eigenfunction and sketch a potential function that is consistent with your observations.
