(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Consider the potential:

V(x)

=0 x<0

=V1 0<x<a

=V2 x>a

Where 0<V1<V2 and E>V2

Evaluate the transmission coefficient for the incident wave into the region x>a

2. Relevant equations

T= 4k0k1/((k0+k1)^2)

3. The attempt at a solution

I have not attempted this. It seems pretty straight forward if there were only ONE step. How does the fact that there are two steps factor into the answer?

Thank you.
