# Practice with an LCAO

## The Prompt

Consider a 3-chain potential well system with separation distance a. Recall the enevelope function for an electron in a potential landscape with N wells can be described with,

$$\psi(x)=\sum_{n=1}^{N}A\sin(kna)\phi(x-na)$$

Sketch the first three eigenstates for this system in real space.
