Quantum mechanics without really knowing what is going on - that is an accurate description. I'm studying electronic engineering - but we're all forced to take on this subject which is called Electronc Materials. I'm finding it tough with little to no background in Physics.
Anyway, I've...
Must I have a value for Vo to find the eigenenergy values?
In all the examples my teacher has ever given, he always seems to write Vo, but not actually specify what it is.
the x-axis is Ehat - the energy, normalised. So: Ehat = E \frac{L}{2}, where L is the length of gap in my "well"
and the y-axis is detS - the determinant of the matrix I created from the boundary and interface conditions. So each x-axis crossing should give me an energy eigenvalue shouldn't...
Homework Statement
I wrote a whole heap of MATLAB code, and I have no idea whether my answers, or the plots of my answers are anywhere in the vicinity of looking right. I was hoping someone with a lil bit of experience in this type of physics would be able to tell me if I'm on the right...
Homework Statement
E=Emax.sin(ωt-kx) describes the electric field of a monochromatic plane wave traveling in the x-direction. Verify that a plane which is perpendicular to the x-diretion and moves along the x-axis at the same speed as the wave is a wave front.
