How does an electron qualify as a particle in a box? It behaves like a wave and, when bound to an atom, has boundaries. Using this notion, the professor explains a quantum mechanical calculation for a hydrogen atom. Given the length of the box and electron transition, he shows the calculation of the wavelength of radiation emitted.
