A particle is in a cubic box with infinitely hard walls whose edges have length L. The wave functions of the particle are given by

[tex]\psi(x)=Asin\frac{n\pi(x)}{L}Asin\frac{n\pi(y)}{L}Asin\frac{n\pi(z)}{L}[/tex]

a) Find the value of the normalization constant A.

b) Find the probability that the particle will be found in the range

2. Relevant equations

in a)--- both questions, do i really need to do the triple integral?

3. The attempt at a solution

is this right? [tex]A=L/8[/tex]
