The wave function of "particle in a box" is Asin(kx).

Since potential energy is zero inside the box, so the Hamiltonian is just kinetic energy

In principle, I should be able to find eigenvalue of momentum using momentum operator,

but stymied in solving the equation. Can somebody help me find whereabouts I am going wrong here? Thanks.
