Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In transmission coefficient T= exp(-2sqrt(2m(U-E)/hbar^2)L), L, as I interpret it, is the distance of the potential barrier. I am wondering if I have N particles all with kinetic energy E, approaching the barrier, can I integrate the transmission coefficient over a distance from infinity to the potential barrier(the charged radius?), and times the number of particles N, to find out how many of them can penetrate the barrier?

Thank you so much for helping me

best regards
