Hi,

I have a very simple question: My professor said that if [tex]\hbar \rightarrow 0[/tex] in the transmission coefficient doesnotyield 0 (case E < V0) as classical results would expect.

I think the correct transmission coefficient is solved in Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rectangular_potential_barrier#E_.3C_V0

But if I calculate [tex]\lim_{\hbar \rightarrow 0} T[/tex] I get 0.

Can anybody tell me what is wrong about it?

Thank you,
