After studying this course, you should be able to:
explain the meanings of key terms and use them appropriately
describe the behaviour of wave packets when they encounter potential energy steps, barriers and wells
describe how stationary-state solutions of the Schrödinger equation can be used to analyse scattering and tunnelling
for a range of simple potential energy functions obtain the solution of the time-independent Schrödinger equation and use continuity boundary conditions to find reflection and transmission coefficients
present information about solutions of the time-independent Schrödinger equation in graphical terms.
