4.15. A particle is moving in a simple harmonic oscillator potential V(x) = 1/2kx^2 for x>0, but with an infinite potential barrier at x=0 (the paddle ball potential). Calculate the allowed wave functions and corresponding energies.

4.16. A particle moves in one dimension in the potential V(x) Vo ln(x/xo) for x>0, where xo and Vo are constants witht he units of length and energy, respectively. There is an infinite potential barrier at x=0. The particle drops from the first excited state with energy E1 into the ground state with energy Eo by emitting a photon with energy E1-E0. Show that the frequency of the photon emitted by this particle is independent of the mass of the particle.
