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

Determine the probability of finding a particle in a 1-D box of size L in a region of size 0.01L at the locations x = 0, 0.25L, 0.5L, 0.75L and L when it is in its ground state. As percentages

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\Psi[/tex](x)=[tex]\sqrt{\frac{2}{L}}[/tex]sin([tex]\frac{nxPI}{L}[/tex])

P=[tex]\Psi[/tex](x,t)^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not even sure if i've got the right equations there, i've tried loads of different ways of doing this and cannot get the right answers, which are 0%,1%,2%,1%,0%

Cheers
