# Particle in an Infinite Circular Well

Particle in an Infinite Circular Well

This Demonstration solves the quantum-mechanical problem of a particle confined to a disk, which can be called an infinite 2D circular well. The probability densities for several energy eigenstates are plotted. The azimuthal quantum number , equal to the number of angular nodes, determines the angular momentum . The radially excited state energies depend on the zeros of the Bessel function (kr).
