The particle in a box (or the infinite potential well) is a simple idealized system that is completely solved within quantun mechanics. The infinite potential well is a finite sized region in space (the box) with an infinite potential at its boundaries ( the wells). A particle experiences no forces while inside the box. The 1-dimensional case, where the motion of the electron is considered only in a single dimension.
