Find the wave function of particle in a 1-dimensional potential Well of length L, n=2 and mass m

2. Relevant equations

I think this would be the wave equation, but not 100% sure

[tex]\varphi=Asin(n\pix/L)[\tex] where n=1,2,3...

tex doesn't work for me---=Asin[n*pi/L]

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to normalize the function using what the book says and came up with

integral of (sin^{2}[n*pi/L]dx[

Is this right? Now I need to find probablity with this....how would I do this?

Can someone please tell me if I am on the right footsteps?

Any help is appreciated.
