Problem 9.4: Rank the kinetic energy, potential energy, and the incident plane wave energy regions
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
Shown is a plane wave incident on several different regions. Each region has a constant potential energy associated with it. In the animation, ħ = 2m = 1. You may switch between phase-as-color and real and imaginary representations by selecting a link above. Rank the regions by:
- the kinetic energy of the plane wave in that region
- the potential energy of the plane wave in that region
- the energy of the plane wave in that region
Ties in ( ) please.
