    • Abstract

       

      We propose Whittaker function approach as a theoretical method for finding exact solutions of a quantum mechanical system placed in the Kratzer potential. We then show that the effect of an external uniform magnetic field on this system can be satisfactorily determined using variational method. By following the one-step treatment suggested in this study, we increase the reliability and the accuracy of the solutions of Schrödinger equation for a quantum mechanical system placed in potential energy and perturbed by a uniform magnetic field that proves to be useful in modelling physical phenomena. We find that the achieved numerical and analytical results agree very well with those already published and those calculated using the Numerov method.
