Shown is the time-independent energy eigenfunction for a particle in a finite-ranged periodic potential energy function (a series of finite square potential energy wells). You may change the state by click-dragging on the energy-level diagram on the left. You may view the energy eigenfunction or the probability density. In the animation, ħ = 2m =1.
How many finite potential energy wells are there?
Why?
