(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

What is the minimum possible energy for five noninteracting spin 1/2 particles of mass m in a one-dimensional box of length L? What if the particles were spin 1? Spin 3/2?

2. Relevant equations

Could someone get me started?

3. The attempt at a solution

U = [-e/(m_e)](sqrt[3]/2)(h_bar)B, where h_bar = 1.055E-34

m_e = electron mass

e = electron charge

B = magnetic field
