Given a probability over x graph, my questions were what is b in nm^1 and what is the probability that you could find the particle between 20nm and 30nm.
In attempts to this problem I tried to square the ψ(x) to get a probability density. I then assumed that under x the graph cancelled out what was about leaving me with 4b^2*10=1 and rearranging for b but this was incorrect and the actual answer was 0.0845 and I have no idea how they got to that answer.
For the second part I realize that I have to intergrate the probability density in order to find the probability with an intergral of an upper limit of 30nm and lower limit of 20nm but I am also unsure of how exactly to intergrate the probability density
