First 6 allowed states for an electron in an infinite square well of width 0.2nm
Hi, just want to check if this is correct.
Question asks to find the first 6 allowed states for an electron in infinite square well of width 0.2nm (Partial answer E1=9.4eV E2=37.6eV)
For an infinite square well En is given by
$\displaystyle E_n = \frac{{n^2 \pi ^2 \hbar ^2 }}{{2mL^2 }}$
I just went that E being proportional to n^2 than E at n=3 would be 3^2 time E3 thus giving 84.6eV and similarly E4=150.4eV , E5=235eV and E6=338.4eV
Or should have this been done differently?
