Main Question or Discussion Point
Hi there, math geeks. Physics geek here. I came across this problem in Griffith's Introduction to Quantum Mechanics, and just can't decide how to attack it.
I've done the previous problems, but this one just threw me for a loop. Can anyone give me some advice? Thanks!A needle of length L is dropped randomly onto a sheet of paper ruled with parallel lines a distance L apart. What is the probability that the needle will cross a line?
