2 Consider an infinite square well potential of width a but with the coordinate system shifted to be centred on the potential (ie. the "walls" of the potential well lie at-a/2 and at +a/2 (see the diagram). Solve the Schroedinger Equation for this case, and find the normalized wavefunctions of the states of definite energy, as well as their associated energy eigenvalues, and their parity.
