Schrödinger equation

  1. Apr 28, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have an attachment

    2. Relevant equations
    Schrödinger equation

    3. The attempt at a solution
    The issues I am having is how to start this one. This is not a infinite square well but a semi-infinite square well.
    I know that energy= K^2= 2mE/h^2
    Where h is planks constant 6.626 X 10^-34 J•s
    So rearranging (K^2 • h^2)/(2m) =E
    How do I find my m and solve the other ones

    At X=L
    The first derivatives must be equal at X=L
    Asin(kL)=Ce^(-aL)
    KAcos(kL)=-aCe^(-aL)

    Am I going in the right direction

    I think this belongs in the advanced physics forum.
