1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The work function (energy needed to remove an electron) of gold is 5.1 eV. Two pieces of gold (at the same potential) are separated by a distance L. For what value of L will the transmission probability for an electron to cross from one to the other be T≈ 10-3? Assume that G = 1 in the formula for the tunneling probability. (a) L = 0.001 nm (b) L = 0.02 nm (c) L = 0.1 nm (d) L = 0.3 nm (e) L = 4 nm 2. Relevant equations T= Ge^(-2KL) K=sqrt(2m/h^2 * (U-E)) 3. The attempt at a solution I have my final tomorrow, this is a practice exam. I tried to solve for K using 5.1eV for (U-E) and then solve for L but I can't figure it out.
