Abstract
The problem of a relativistic spin 1/2 particle confined to a one-dimensional box is solved in a way that resembles closely the solution of the well known quantum-mechanical textbook problem of a non-relativistic particle in a box. The energy levels and probability density are computed and compared with the non-relativistic case. Resumo. O problema de uma particula de spin 1/2 confinada por uma caixa a uma dimensao e resolvido de uma maneira muito semelhante a da resolucao do problema de uma particula no-relativista numa caixa referido em muitos livros introdutorios de Mecânica Quntâica. Os niveis de energia e a densidade de probabilidade sao calculados e compar...
