What are the energies and wave functions for the quantum mechanical model where V = infinity for x less than or equal to 0 and V = kx2/2 for x greater than or equal to 0?
1-D particle in a box E = (h2/8m)(n2/L2)
Harmonic Oscillator E = (v + 1/2)(h/2*pi)w
The Attempt at a Solution
Honestly, I had no clue where to start. This was the last problem on our first exam. I tried drawing what it would represent graphically but I'm not really sure what I was supposed to answer... Do I add the energies together? Wave functions? I'm not even sure what format our professor was looking for he didn't tell us...
