Homework Help: Finite square quantum well - depth

  1. Oct 13, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Find the condition on the depth of the finite square well such that one finds two even and one odd bound state energy eigenstates, but no other bound state solutions exist. Your answer should appear as a range of allowed well depths, say ? < Vdepth of well < ?

    2. Relevant equations

    Finite Square Quantum Well

    3. The attempt at a solution


    h2/8mL2 < Vdepth of well < 9h2/8mL2

    Why don't you try solving for the energies of the bound states of a finite square well?
