Hello all, I came across what I think is a very interesting question the other day;(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How would you treat a particle trapped in a square well that had one finite wall and one infinite wall? Say for E_{n~(n*pi*(h-bar))2/(2m(L+2d)2) would you replace the 2d by 1d? As you can only find the infinite 'wall' outside one of the walls? And what affects would it have on other areas, in comparison to either a normal finite square well or an infinite one?}
