The solution of the time-dependent Schrödinger equation is discussed for a particle confined in half-space x>0 with a linear potential V(x)=Kx in the following situations: (a) sudden removal of the wall and switching on the linear potential V(x)=Kx at x ≤0, (b) sudden removal of the wall and the potential and (c) sudden removal of the potential. A brief discussion of quantum statistics is presented.
