Hi guys! This is my first post on Physics Forums even, and I have a question regarding potential wells with finite potential. I understand the infinite potential well but what if the well is finite? For example, if we a potential well with infinite potential to the left of 0, but with increasing potential (say linear with respect to x for simplicity) to the right, what would the waves look like for the different energy states? Are there even bound states or is it completely unbound? I'm having trouble thinking about this. Thanks in advance!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
