Determine the four lowest energy levels, their degeneracies and quantum numbers of the wavefunctions for an electron in

i) a rigid spherical box of 2 Angstrom radius and,

ii) a rigid cubic box of the same volume

Express the result in multiples of ħ2/(2m0a2), and in electron Volt units. Plot the result on energy level diagrams and comment.

2. Relevant equations

Schroedinger's equation in spherical coordinates...

3. The attempt at a solution

Not sure how to solve 3d questions.....
