    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    the problem text is attached

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have solved Schrödingen equation, while getting
    psi(x)=c1*cos(kx)+c2*sin(kx), where k=sqrt(2Em)/hbar
    I cannot understand which boundary conditions I schould use.
