Infinite and Finite Well

In this exercise, students explore the infinite and finite wells and how the energy eigenstates and eigenvalues change as you change the potential parameters.

Note that typically, before this exercise is given, students are given a brief onboarding lesson where they are introduced to Composer. We are working on developing content for this, and in the meantime, if you desire such a tutorial, contact Carrie at


Key words and phrases: infinite square well, finite square well, eigenstates, eigenvalues
