Linear potential well solutions and flat well

  1. Aug 14, 2012 #1
    if a linear potential is applied to a well, why is the wavelength for a given energy E no longer constant?

    The wavelength depends on the difference "particle energy" - "potential", and this is not constant if the potential is not constant.
