Consider the case for a particle with energy E in a region where :(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

V = 0 , x<0; V=Vo, x>0;

for the first region when we write Schrodinger’s equation(Time independent) it will be

-h^2/2m d2ψ/dx2 = Eψ

and for second region it was

-h^2/2m d2ψ/dx2 = (Vo-E)ψ;

My doubt is that wont the Energy E be different in the second region because the particle experiences an impulse at x=0.

The case is where E<Vo.
