Homework Help: Particle in a box quantum mechanics

  1. Dec 27, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    ## E \propto n^2 ##

    ## \frac { \Delta E} E = \frac { 2n +1} {n^2} ##

    In the limit of large quantum number, ## \frac { \Delta E} E = \frac { 2} {n} ##, option (a).
