energy of an electron in an infinite well

Part a

Consider an electron in an infinite well of width 0.03 nm.
Given : 1eV = 1.60218 × 10^-19 J
hbar = 1.05457 × 10^-34 J s ,

What is the ground-state energy of the electron, in electron volts? Answer in units of keV.

Part b
What is the energy of the first excited state?
Answer in units of keV.
