My calculations always come out all right, but I still feel that I need help conceptualizing the potential well.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1.What does the width(or length) of the well represent?

2.What does the depth of the well represent?

Sincerely appreciative,

Yonderboy
