Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So I was recently set straight on the fact that bound state does *not* necessarily mean E<0 but rather is the statement that E<V(+/- infinity). So how do we apply this definition to the infinite square well where the potential at +/- infinity vanishes, and yet the bound states have positive energy?

Thanks in advance!
