Particles in Real Boxes

A "real" quantum mechanical box - that is, one that is 3-dimensional. We consider the case of a particle confined to a rectangular parallelepiped. The Schrodinger equation for this system separates neatly into 3 one dimensional cases and we propose that the solutions to these problems are the 1-D particle in a box wavefunctions. We will verify this in the next lecture.
