The problem is as follows:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 50-eV electron is trapped between negligible-width capacitors charged to 200V (each with an exit hole). How far does its wave function extend beyond the capacitors? I know the answer is 1.6 x 10^-11 m, but I cannot get to that.

Any ideas?
