In all problems the Mathematica output
is part of your grade and must be turned in with your paper-and-pencil
calculations. If I don't say to use Mathematica you can if you

3. GRIFFITHS PROBLEM 5.16, PAGE 223.
4. GRIFFITHS PROBLEM 5.18, PAGE 229. For part b take a=A=1 and use
Mathematical to plot ψ(x) between 0≤x≤a for ka=π, 2π, 3π, and 4π, and
interpret the result. Hint: For these values of ka use the deBroglie
formula to argue how many half-waves must fit in a unit cell of length
