Particle inside a box

    Hi,
    in case of a particle inside a box (infinite square well), can degeneracy occur for different energy eigen states?
    please explain...

    What do you think? Can you get the same value of energy with two different values of n?

    Is this homework?

    @jtbell yes degeneracy should not occur in that case...was in doubt about the concept of degeneracy... Thanks
