Question

Considera particle in the ground state of an infinite
square well where the left half of the well rises at a linear rate
to a potential of V0in a time **τ**, and then falls back at a
linear rate in a time **τ**. What is the probability that the
particle is now in the first excited state?

Answer #1

Answer is explained below:

The square of coefficients represents the probability of the wavefunction.

A particle is in the ground state of an infinite square well.
The potential wall at x = L suddenly (i.e., instantaneously) moves
to x = 3L. such that the well is now three times its original size.
(a) Let t = 0 be at the instant of the sudden change in the
potential well. What is ψ(x, 0)?
(b) If you measure the energy of the particle in the new well,
what are the possible energies?
(c) Estimate the...

Suppose initially a particle is in the ground state of a
1-dimensional inﬁnite square well which extends from x = 0 → a. The
wall of the square well is suddenly moved to 2a, so the square well
now extends from x = 0 → 2a. What is the probability of ﬁnding the
particle in the n = 3 state of the new (larger) square well?

For a particle trapped in a one-dimensional infinite square well

b) The middle third of the box: ?/3 ≤ ? ≤ 2?/3
c) The right third of the box: 2?/3 ≤ ? ≤ L
After doing parts a), b), and c):
d) Calculate the sum of the probabilities you got for...

A particle is trapped in an infinite potential well. Describe
what happens to the particle’s ground-state energy and wave
function as the potential walls become finite and get lower and
lower until they finally reach zero (U = 0 everywhere).
