Answer on Quantum Mechanics Question for raj

Question #2251
A quantum particle confined to one dimensional box of width 'a' is in its first exited state. What is the probability of finding the particle over an interval of (a/2) marked symmetrically at the centre of the box.
Expert's answer
At the first exited state the probability density is equal to

or simplier: if the full probability is 1 and the probability function is symmetrical relatively the center of& the box, the probability of finding the particle over the half of the box is equal to the 1/2.
