Highlights of the activity

  1. SWBQ: Graphically represent any bound states you can think of.

Reasons to spend class time on the activity

This activity is useful for making connections between the energies observed in classical systems and those in quantum systems. Students will also have the opportunity to reflect on where they have previously encountered bound states in physics and how these bound states are commonly represented physically or graphically.
