# Write out the total wave function . For an electron in the n=3 state of a 10nm wide infinite well. Other than the symbols a and t, the function should include only numerical values?

The total wave function for n=3 state is given as,

See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Writing the wave function and energy expression for an infinite well.

The total wave function for an infinite well is

For n=3 state, the expression for energy becomes

## Step 2: Arriving at the final result.

Substituting the energy equation and given that L=10 nm & n=3

We get,
