Main Question or Discussion Point

In order to use WKB approximation, the potential has to be "slowly varying". I learnt the method from this video:


But the Professor hasn't mentioned in detail what the measure of "slowly varying" is.

What is the limit beyond which we cannot use the WKB method accurately?
