Hφ(x) =((p(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{2}_{op})/2m + V(x))φ(x) = (-hbar^{2}/2m.d^{2}/dx^{2}+ V(x)φ(x) = E φ(x)

This equation is supposed to relate to an electron confined in a one-dimensional potential well. I'm really confused about where it comes from and I do not know what V(x) represents. If anyone could help explain this, I'd be very grateful :D
