Unformatted text preview: we get K = 2.29 nm , q = 1.25, and therefore T = 0.0165, so above one percent. -1 3. Tunneling. The maximum safe current in a copper wire with a diameter of 3.0 mm is about 20 A. For higher currents, the wire melts. In an STM (scanning tunneling microscope), a current of 0.50 nA passes from the tip to the surface in a filament of diameter 1.2 nm. Compare the current density (current per cross-section area, in A mm-2) in the copper wire with that in the STM. Copper: STM tip: The current density in the STM tip is over 150 times larger than in the copper wire. 4. Operators. Do the operators for kinetic energy ̂ and for linear momentum ̂ ̂ ̂ by applying it to an...
