Calculate the probability for finding the ground state harmonic oscillator

beyond its classical turning points.

2. Relevant equations

Psi n(q) = (alpha/pi)^(1/4) exp(−alpha*q^(2)/2), where alpha = (kμ)^(1/2)/h bar

3. The attempt at a solution

i know it's going to be probability = 1-intergral of psi*psi, but i'm not sure what the boundaries are.
