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

Where is the particle most likely to be found given the wavefunction in the diagram

Also the wavefunction decays exponentially as x goes to infinty

2. Relevant equations

well the wavefunction is the probability amplitude

the square modulus of the wavefunction gives the probability desnity

and the square modulus times delta x gives the probability of finidng a particle bewtween x and x + delta x

3. The attempt at a solution

i think it is most likely to be fond where the probability amplitude is maximum because at those regions the particle has maximum proabiltiy of being found

is this correct??

thanks for your help!
