## Zero Point Energy of Particle in 1D Box Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Zero Point Energy of Particle in 1D Box = ([hP]^2)/(8*Mass of Particle*(Length of 1D Box)^2)
Z.P.E = ([hP]^2)/(8*m*(a)^2)
This formula uses 1 Constants, 3 Variables
Constants Used
[hP] - Planck constant Value Taken As 6.626070040E-34 Kilogram Meter² / Second
Variables Used
Zero Point Energy of Particle in 1D Box - (Measured in Joule) - Zero Point Energy of Particle in 1D Box is defined as the lowest possible energy that the particle possess in the ground state.
Mass of Particle - (Measured in Kilogram) - Mass of Particle is defined as the energy of that system in a reference frame where it has zero momentum.
Length of 1D Box - (Measured in Meter) - Length of 1D Box gives us the dimension of the box in which the particle is kept.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Mass of Particle: 9E-31 Kilogram --> 9E-31 Kilogram No Conversion Required
Length of 1D Box: 1.2 Angstrom --> 1.2E-10 Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Z.P.E = ([hP]^2)/(8*m*(a)^2) --> ([hP]^2)/(8*9E-31*(1.2E-10)^2)
Evaluating ... ...
Z.P.E = 4.23464546440833E-18
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
4.23464546440833E-18 Joule -->26.4305666115518 Electron-Volt (Check conversion here)
26.4305666115518 26.43057 Electron-Volt <-- Zero Point Energy of Particle in 1D Box

## Zero Point Energy of Particle in 1D Box Formula

Zero Point Energy of Particle in 1D Box = ([hP]^2)/(8*Mass of Particle*(Length of 1D Box)^2)
Z.P.E = ([hP]^2)/(8*m*(a)^2)

## Is the zero point energy of 1D box in accordance with the uncertainty principle ?

The Z.P.E of particle in 1D box is finite which means that the particle inside the box is not at rest even at 0K. This means that the position of the particle cannot be precisely known. Since only the expectation value of kinetic energy is known the linear momentum of the particle is also not known. Thus Z.P.E is in accordance with the uncertainty principle.
