(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A particle is moving in a one dimensional box of infinite height of width 10 Angstroms. Calculate the probability of finding the particle within an interval of 1 Angstrom at the centre of the box, when it is in its state of least energy.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]

\psi _{n}=\sqrt{\frac{2}{L}}sin \frac{n\pi x}{L}

[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

The wave function of the particle in the ground state (n=1) is [tex]\psi _{1}=\sqrt{\frac{2}{L}}sin \frac{\pi x}{L}[/tex]. Now, what should I do ?
