Let's have a kind of step potential,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

V=infinity, where x[tex]\leq[/tex]0,

V=constant, where 0[tex]\leq[/tex]x[tex]\leq[/tex]a,

V=zero , where x[tex]\geq[/tex]a.

Then, my question is that when the energy of the particle is lesser than zero, which

means that the particle is in the bound state, is there a probability of getting the

particle where x[tex]\geq[/tex]a ??
