Hi, I am confused about how we obtain a part of the Schrodinger equation for a particle of mass m that is constrained to move freely along a line between 0 and a.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Equation:

[itex]\frac{d^{2}ψ}{dx^{2}}[/itex]+([itex]\frac{8∏^{2}mE}{h^{2}}[/itex])ψ(x)=0

Where does the value in the parenthesis come from and what is this value for? How do we arrive at this part of this equation??

I'd really appreciate some help with this I have a quiz in the morning for physical chemistry and I really need to do well.

Thank you,

Chris
