Homework Help: Compute tau

  1. Sep 24, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Compute [tex]\tau[/tex] for and electron in the double square well potential of width L = 2 Bohr, and depth [tex]\bar{V}[/tex] = 4 and separation R = 3. Use atomic units for your computation.

    2. Relevant equations
    In his lecture notes... he gave us [tex]\tau[/tex] = h/[tex]\Delta[/tex]E .

    I don't know where that [tex]\Delta[/tex]E comes from.

    Welcome to PF.

    Can you calculate the two lowest energy levels for this potential?
