A question about the square well

  1. Jul 7, 2010 #1
    hey physicists;

    I have a question concerning the problem of finding the bound states of a spherically symmetric square well. The solutions of the radial equation inside and outside the well are given by:

    R(r)=Aj_l(sqrt(2m(V-|E|))*r);
    R(r)=Bh_l(sqrt(2m|E|)*i*r)
    respectively, where j_l and h_l are spherical Bessel and spherical hankel functions. the task we have is to find the constants A and B and what I got from applying the orthogonality relation is
    A=sqrt(2/pi)*p
    and B=(j_0/k_0)*A

    Would any one who knows the answer tell me if my constants are correct?
