I need to explain why, as the energy of a bound state in a finite potential well increases, the wave function extends more outside of the well. I need to do this from both a mathematical and a physical point of view. I think I know the mathematical explanation (see attached image). Can anyone help me with the physical explanation?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
