The Probability of funneling can be described with a transmission coefficient T and reflection coefficent R. The transmission coefficient represents the probability that the particle penetrates to the otherside of the barrier.
Sub: Physics Topic: QuantumMechanics Question: An electron having total energy E = 3.70 eV approaches a rectangular energy barrier with U = 4.90 eV and L = 950 pm, as in Figure. Classically, the electron cannot pass through the barrier because E < U. ClassOf1 provides expert guidance to College, Graduate, and High school students on homework and assignment problems in Math, Sciences, Finance, Marketing, Statistics, Economics, Engineering, and many other subjects.
