# Homework Help: Energy Levels Finite Well

Hi, I am trying to show that the energy levels for a finite potential well can be determined from these two equations$$\gamma$$ = kcot(-ka/2) for B=0 and $$\gamma$$ =-ktan(-ka/2) for A=0.

I think it has something to do with substituting in the value of k, but I'm not quite sure where to start....any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Alex

What's A? What's B? What's a? What's k? What are you talking about? Try and rephrase your question in the form of a question, please...
