For a finite one-dimensional square potential well if a proton is bound, how many bound energy states are there?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If m = 1.67*10^(-27) kg a = 2.0fm and the depth of the well is 40MeV.

Now I know the energy levels are

En = (n^2 * h^2) /(8ma^2) = (n^2*pi*2)/4 * (2hbar^2)/(ma^2)

but I am unsure as to how to find the number of the allowed energy states. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
