Using the normalization constantAand the value ofa, evaluate the probability to find an oscillator in the ground state beyond the classical turning points ±x_{0}. Assume an electron bound to an atomic-sized region (x_{0}= 0.1 nm) with an effective force constant of 1.0 eV/nm^{2}.

2. Relevant equations

[itex]\psi(x)=Ae^{-ax^{2}}[/itex], where [itex]A=(\frac{m\kappa}{\pi^{2}\hbar^{2}})^{1/8}[/itex] and [itex]a=\sqrt{m\kappa}/2\hbar[/itex]

3. The attempt at a solution

How do I findm?
