## Homework Statement

a particle with mass m is in a region where the voltage is infinite. What is the wave function?

## Homework Equations

d^2ψ/d^2x=k^2ψ

k=√2m(v+E)/h(bar)^2)

ψ=Bcos(kx) or ψ=Bsin(kx)

## The Attempt at a Solution

Since voltage is infinite, k would also be infinite, so would the wave function just be undefined? This would make sense because I don't think the particle can even exist here. I'm just worried this may be a trick question?

Thanks in advance!
