    4. A particle of mass m, with energy E>0, is moving in the potential

    V(x) = g

    a. Write down the solution of the Schrodinger equation in all three regions (x<a,
    -a<x<a, x>a) for this situation. Assume that the particle is incident from the left.
    b. Write down the appropriate continuity conditions at x = +a and x = -a.
    c. Compute the transmission coefficient. Please express your final answer in terms of p*a/h-bar, where p = , and the constant
