Homework Help: Schrodinger equation in a well question?

  1. Dec 9, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    (See attached picture)
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm not even sure where to start :( I'm assuming that i have to find a wave function outside and inside the well and meet certain boundary conditions, but I am confused. Please help.

    You are supposed to apply the Wilson-Sommerfeld quantization condition.
    If you don't know what that is, your first step will be to find out.
    You can do this by hunting through your lecture or course notes, or searching online.

    Aside: what is important about the particle being classical that the author felt the need to put word "classical" in bold face? What does the "NB" note tell you to expect to happen someplace in your working?

    Good luck.
