# Quantum Tunneling different individual transmission probabilities

• B

## Summary:

Different individual transmission probabilities of electrons, protons, etc, in Quantum Tunneling.

## Main Question or Discussion Point

I have gone through all the videos on Youtube about Quantum Tunneling and became interested in it, so any helpful feedback would be appreciated.

Do all the different individual transmission probabilities of electrons, protons, and such remain constant?

May I ask what is the "formula" or "chart values" for the different individual transmission probabilities of electrons, protons, etc, and such are in Quantum Tunneling of these.

I am NOT an expert in Quantum Mechanics in the Least and I Hope I've made the Question Easy enough to Understand.

For a particle interacting with a potential barrier, you can calculate the reflection and transmission coefficients in each case. These depend on the energy and mass of the particle and the strength of the barrier.

See here, for example:
