The Asymmetric Well

Logo for The Asymmetric Well
This visualization shows the wave function and probability density for energy eigenstates of a quantum particle in a 1D infinite asymmetric well potential. The user can choose the quantum number of the eigenstate, and overlay the classical probability densities. A "step-by-step exploration" tab explains the key points. The animation can be downloaded. Instructors can email ak81@st-andrews.ac.uk for the password for the instructor resources.
