1. If the incident wave is coming from LHS,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what happens to the wave amplitude on the RHS when electron energy is equal V_{0}?

2. the wavevectors on both sides of the step are different (generally), is there an energy at which the have the same magnitude?

thanks for any help..
