Obtaining schrodinger equation

  1. Apr 22, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations


    This is what I'm trying to obtain, in terms of the elements in the question. Assuming that these 'x' values are 'z'.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm not really understanding what it is being asked here. Do I just substitute the value of V(z) in to obtain the expression? Any advice is appreciated!

    Anyone have an idea? :(

    I'm thinking that I have to somehow convert that classical expression of V into quantum mechanical terms with operators. Does that sound right?
