I found the following question in a question paper.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If the potential experienced by a particle in one dimension is given by [tex]ax^4[/tex], how does the energy of the particle depend on the parameter a? Use Bohr-Sommerfeld quantisation formula..

I know how to find the dependence of energy on n, the integer that occurs in the quantisation.

But how does it depend on a?

Since

Hamiltonian is [tex]\ K+V[/tex] ,

Energy is [tex]\ K+ax^4[/tex].

I dont know what else I can say.
