Wave function of particle

  1. Feb 16, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Given the potential, and energy of a particle at rest,

    Sketch the wave function

    2. Relevant equations

    The time invariant schroedinger equation

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I dont really know how to do this question

    Basically, I am given the potential, and energy of a particle. I need to sketch the wave function of the particle given these.

    Do I just integrate twice then subtract something?

    Nice exercise. You done the square well potential already (or was it in the main text) ?
    E is probably a constant. But what about V? If you use Vo, it looks as if you consider it constant. in some places that's OK, but not everywhere.
