This PhET interactive simulation allows you to explore how quantum mechanics describes what happens when a subatomic particle approaches a "potential barrier." The particle is represented by a wave packet or a plane wave. You can set the energy of the incoming packet and the height and shape of the barrier. The simulation shows you the transmitted and reflected waves.
