The Asymmetric Infinite Well

The Asymmetric Infinite Well

This visualization shows the wave function and probability density for energy eigenstates of a quantum particle in a 1D infinite asymmetric well potential. The user can choose the quantum number of the eigenstate, and overlay the classical probability densities. A "step-by-step exploration" tab explains the key points. The animation can be downloaded. Instructors can email for the password for the instructor resources....
