Homework Help: Quantum mechanics problem

  1. Jan 18, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations

    Time independent schrodinger equation

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I interpretted the schrodinger equation as kinetic energy plus potential energy equals total energy, but i am not sure this makes much sense

    yes, that's right. And since you know the Schrodinger equation, what is the operator for kinetic energy ? (this is the important bit, you don't need the rest of the Schrodinger equation in this part of the question).
