Hi All,

Since QM says one can measure a particle's position and find it at places which are forbiden by classical physics, as in one-dimensional step potential case, with the particle having less energy than the potential heigth, which would be the kinetic energy of the particle measured at such positions?

Put differently: what would happen if one tryed to measure the particle's energy at such position?

Best wishes,
