I've attached the equation for the transmission coefficient of a particle going through a potential barrier and E < V. I was simply wondering in the limit V --> E, why does T --> 0 (i.e. the V-E term --> 0 and thus the denominator would approach infinity, making T --> 0)? Shouldn't it be approaching 1?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
