Hi, sorry, I'm kind of struggling to understand how the equation works; can someone explain the equation in physical example? Like if one variable grows bigger, what happens to the others, and what would that mean?

As the length L gets larger, the E gap becomes smaller, and finally goes to the classical limit: the energy is almost continuous.

Okay but when do you use the equation for? I never fully understood where to use it (if anyone knows if it explains in the textbook let me know)

I believe there is an example in the textbook (6th edition) on page 23. It goes through how to calculate the energies of a particle in a box.

When length increases, the energy gap decreases.
