A2_2 Dodging a Bullet

James Anthony Farrow, Jeremy Hue, Robert Miller, Chris Checklin


This paper discusses the possibility of a person being able to dodge a bullet through a quantum tunnelling event. A quantum mechanical approach was taken, modelling the bullet as a collection of individual atoms with identical wavelengths. The probability of tunnelling was then taken to be the collective probability of each atom tunnelling individually. The result obtained was (5.11E-19)(exp(-4.48E24)^(3.21E19)) which is effectively zero.
