## Homework Statement

*Use the eigenfunction Ψ(x) =A'e*

^{ikx}+ B'e^{-ikx}rather than Ψ(x)=Asinkx + Bcoskx to apply the boundary conditions for the particle in a box. A. How do the boundary conditions restrict the acceptable choices for A’ and B’ and for k? B. Do these two functions give different probability density if each is normalized?## Homework Equations

?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know that the limits are Ψ(0)=Ψ(a)=0, Ψ(x)=0

When I apply that to the equation

Ψ(0) =A'e

^{ik0}+ B'e

^{-ik0}= A'+B'= 0

and

Ψ(a) =A'e

^{ika}+ B'e

^{-ika}

And I don't know what to do from here. Any help would be appreciated
