# Consider the electron wave functionwhere x is in cm. a. Determine the normalization constant c. b. Draw a graph of c1x2 over the interval -2 cm x 2 cm. Provide numerical scales on both axes.c. Draw a graph of 0 c1x2 0 2 over the interval -2 cm x 2 cm. Provide numerical scales. d. If 104 electrons are detected, how many will be in the interval 0.00 cm x 0.50 cm?

(a) The value of normalization constant c is 0.866 cm-1/2

(d) prob =0.344

(e) The number of electrons detected in the interval

See the step by step solution

## Subpart (a) part 1:

Simplify it further and solve for c

Thus, the value of normalization constant c is 0.866 cm-1/2

## Subpart (b) part 1:

The following is the graph of over the interval

From the above graph, it is clear that the values of decrease from position x=0cm to x=1cm so, the graph appears to be bowed upward in the interval and as per the condition, the value of is zero at

## Subpart (c) part 1:

The following is the graph of over the interval

From the above graph, it is clear that the values of decrease from position x=0cm to x=1cm so, the graph appears to be bowed upward in the interval and as per the condition, the value of

## Subpart (d) step 4:

Calculate the probability of electrons in the interval prob

=0.344

## Given Expression:

Substitute 104 for N and 0.344 for

Thus the number of electrons detected in the interval 3440
