There is an initial state Psi(x) =Ax(b/2 - x) when 0< x <b/2 and Psi(x) = 0 when b/2 < x <b(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have to find the second lowest value possibly be obtained in a measurement of the energy.

Should I treat this as a box with width b and possible energy states E=n^2*h^2/8mb^2 ? Or should I use the width b/2 ?

Could someone please help me?
