    Please read the forum Guidelines. We can not help with textbook problems unless you show some effort first. Also, next time round, use the Homework & Coursework Forum near the top of the main page.

    The WF will be cosh in the middle, and exponential on either side.
    The slope will have a discontinuity of -alpha at each delta.
    Take it from there.
