Homework Help: Energy of a Tunnelling Particle

  1. Aug 14, 2008 #1
    I'm just making sure... after a particle tunnels through a potential barrier, assuming that there are no forces acting on the particle, like friction, etc. which dissipates energy, the particle should have the same energy as it did before it tunneled through, right?
