In describing a potential step where E = V0, with an interval 1 defined as x < 0 before the step and an interval 2 as x > 0 after the step, is the wave function in interval 2 classically allowed or classically forbidden, i.e. is it an oscillating function or a decaying exponential function?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
