An electron is trapped in an infinite square-well potential of width 0.5 nm. If the electron is initially in the n = 4 state, what are the various photon energies that can be emitted as the electron jumps to the ground state?
The Schroedinger Equation:
-[STRIKE]h[/STRIKE]/2m*d^2Y/dx^2 + V*Y = E*Y
En = - Eo/n^2
The Attempt at a Solution
My understanding is that Y(0) = Y(L) = 0, making them the boundary conditions.
You need to find the solution for Y by solving the Schroedinger Eq'n, which is a Differential Equation.
I'm totally blank afterwards.
