Problem 11.8(b)

Can the function = x2(L 2x) be used as a trial wavefunction for the n = 1 state of a particle with mass m in a one-dimensional box of length L? If the answer is yes, then express the energy of this trial wavefunction in terms of h, m, and L and compare it with the exact result (eqn 9.4). If the answer is no, explain why this is not a suitable trial wavefunction.

Alyssa Anderson Chemistry Notes Week 3 An atom is the smallest quantity of matter that still retains the properties of matter An element is a substance that cannot be broken down into two or more similar substances by any means (such as gold, oxygen, helium) Atoms can also be divided smaller and smaller and eventually only a single atom remains. Dividing it further would make...
