## Homework Statement

Find the ground state energy and the ground state wavefunction for a particle of mass m moving in the potential

V=[itex]\frac{1}{2}[/itex]mw[itex]^{2}[/itex]x[itex]^{2}[/itex] at x>0

V=[itex]\infty[/itex] at x<0

## The Attempt at a Solution

Well, the problem I am having is that I have answering questions that always had a boundary such as -a<x<a or something of the like, but now that only one side looks like an infinite potential well, I am confused towards how I should tackle this problem...

can someone give me a hint so I can at least try to solve this?

thanks!
