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

Consider an electron in a three-dimensional cubic box of side length L_{z}. The walls of the box are presumed to correspond to infinitely high potentials.

2. Relevant equations

E_{n}=((h^{2})/8ML_{z2})(n^{2}) where n corresponds to the principal quantum numbers in their respective axes

3. The attempt at a solution

My only question is if the side lengths of the cubic box are all of length L_{z}, does that necessarily mean that all of the principal quantum numbers "n" can be written as n_{z}also or are they all independent of the each other and of the side lengths? Thanks.
