P2_5 Bouncing Back

Thomas Morris, Katie Raymer, Benjamin Jordan, Oliver Youle


This paper aims to calculate the probability of a person being reflected back from a cliffs edge whilst try to run off of it. This is by treating the cliff as a negative potential step, and the person as a point of mass. The probability of reflection is found to be = which although extremely small, is non-zero. The paper also discusses the limits of the model presented when considering decoherence.
