Scattering Pretest Name: _______________________________________ CU ID: ____________________ For the two questions below, consider the graph of the potential energy for a one-dimensional system as shown at the right. V(x) = 0 for x<0 and V 0 for x>0. Q1: Describe in words the boundary conditions for this system for a situation which describes particles which approach from the right.
