Schrödinger equation question

  1. Nov 16, 2008 #1
    The solution of the one dimensional Schrödinger equation for a particle in a one dimensional box is [tex]Asin \frac{n \pi x}{a}[/tex]. But how about if the box is 2D or 3D?

    Have you considered actually solving the Schroedinger equation for these cases?...An attempt at that would probably be a good way to start.

    What is the general solution then?

    Show us an attempt and I'll be happy to help you. Start with the 2D case.
