### Quantum Mechanical Escapes: Tunneling Through Walls

What happens when you shoot an electron at a wall? We consider the case of a particle impinging on a rectangular potential barrier to discover that under many conditions - the particle goes right through! An electron with an energy of 4 eV has about a 70% chance of going "through" a 5eV wall and coming out the other side.
