## Homework Statement

A particle is represented by the following wave function:

ψ(x)=0 x<-L/2

=C(2x/L+1) -L/2<x<0

=C(-2x/L+1) 0<x<+L/2

=0 x>+L/2

use the normalization condition to find C

## Homework Equations

ψ(x) must be continuous[/B]

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm supposed to say that at the points -L/2, 0, +L/2 ψ(x) must be continuous, so then I can find C. But I get C=0. For example at x= L/2 I get 0=0 and 0= -2C/L for the conditions so C=0.

I feel like I must just either overlooking something stupid or I'm just doing this completely wrong.
