Use Uncertainty principle to find gound state energy?

  1. Feb 6, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A particle of mass m is subjected to a potential V(x)=Kx.Use uncertainty principle in the form Δx.Δp≈h(bar)/2 to estimate ground state energy of the particle.
    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have no idea. :(
