- TL;DR Summary
- What is the relationship between probability and energy levels in for a particle in a box?

Given a particle in a 1D box with a finite number of states ##m##, is the probability a particle is in a certain state ##n## equal to the energy of that state divided by the sum of energies of all states? In other words, given $$ E_n = \dfrac{n^{2}h^{2}}{8mL^{2}}$$ is $$P_n= \frac{E_n}{\sum_{k=1}^{m}E_k}? $$
