Potential barrier inside an infinite well: Should the amplitude be the same both side

Quote Quote by Oliman View Post
This means that when I plot the wave functions I end up with equal amplitudes on either side of the barrier. I would have thought that the amplitude in region three is smaller than the amplitude in region one.
Why would you expect that? Is there something different about region 3 that would cause the amplitude to be smaller there than in region 1?
