a mass of 10^-6 grams is moving at a speed of 0.1 cm/s in a box 1 cm in length. Treating this as a 1-D infinite square well, i am to calculate the quantum number n:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i was wondering if I am setting this up correct:

[tex]\frac{1}{2} * 10^{-6 }g * 0.1 cm/s = \frac{n^2 \pi^2 \hbar ^2}{2*10^{-6 }g * 1cm^2}[/tex]
