If you make the length of a finite well shorter, then the energy levels should increase, because for example the uncertainty principle. But can the ground state, when squeezed, have such high energy that the energy is greater than the potential of the well? Does that even make sense?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
