In a neutral conductor if we assume electrons as point charges, the electric field in the space between them cannot be identically zero. This microscopic field may be very weak. What if we were very ...
I have an electric field value for a uniform structure through which an electron travels. Given that I've calculated a transfer rate (frequency) for the electron when it goes from one molecule to the ...
I have created a simulation of one electron bouncing through a 3D mesh of molecules. The electron hopping is determined by a calculation of electron transfer rate using the Marcus equation (a result ...
In my textbook, it says that any electron bound in metals, modelled as some potential well $U$, has negative total electron energy, as shown below in the figure. Why is the total electron energy ...
I was going over my notes for an introductory course to electricity and magnetism and was intrigued by something I don't have an answer to. I remember my professor mentioning, to the best I can ...
