This was one of the bonus questions on my homework. Teacher says whoever gets it right, consider yourself a god or goddess. Can anyone help me solve this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Calculate the lowest possible energy for an electron confined in a cube of sides equal to 10pm, and a cube of sides equal to 1fm. The latter cube is about the size of a nucleus. What do your energies say about the chance of an electron being inside the nucleus? *Hint: Assuming that the uncertainty in the position of the electron is the length of a side of a cube, find the change in Energy (triangle E is symbol) for each cube.
