Unformatted text preview: that if E corresponds (approximately) to the bound state of the well for the infinite barrier then the amplitude of the wave function in the well will tend to be large (as in (b)). [Resonance tunneling] In general, though, it is easy to see that the amplitude within the well is small (as in (a), (c)).
Conclusion: There is no rock‐solid guiding principle how the amplitude in one region compares with the amplitude in another region. However, for a bound state, particle will on the average have larger probab...
