Infinite-square-well potential Problem

  1. Dec 6, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    \Delta x_{n}\ Delta P_{n} in the situation of an infinite-square-well potential in the eigenstate |\psi_{n}> of the hamiltonian.

    2. Relevant equations

    psi(x)=Sqr(2/a) sin( n*Pi x / a) , for n = 1,2,3

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I need a hint to let me start solving the problem. the problem statement is not clear for me.

    Thanks

    R

    What part of the problem formulation is unclear to you? You need to share your thoughts on the problem if you want us to be able to help you properly.

    The entire statement is not clear. They are asking to calculate \Delta x_{n}\ Delta P_{n} , This is not clear for me

    How does ##\Delta x## come about usually ?
