For a particle with a force acting on it whose potential is given by U(x) = g*lnx for x>1 and U(x) = ∞ for x = 1, how do I calculate the ground state energy of the particle?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Supposedly, there is no need to use Schrodinger's equations for this question, which is why I have no idea how to start.

Thanks for any help.
