how does the quantum number n in the wavefunction equation for a particle in a 1D box lead to increasingly well-separated energy levels?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that the separation of energy between the levels is given by ΔE = (2n+1)h^2 / 8mL^2 which means that the higher the n, the greater the energy separation, which explains this mathematically. But I just don't understand the concept behind the idea.
