Ok, so suppose there is a free particle of mass m that moves in a one-dimensional space in the interval 0<=x, with energy E. There is a rigid wall at x=0. Write down a time independent wave function G(x) which satisfies these conditions, in terms of x and k, where k is the wave vector of motion. State the relation between k and E.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So what do I do? The solution G(x)=xAexp(ikx) seems to obey the one boundary condition we have here, but can this be correct?And could this possibly be an eigenfunction of the Hamiltonian for this system?
