comment Tunneling of alpha particles
Thank you for your detailed explanation! To make sure I have understood it correctly: The main point is that the "edge" of the potential is not solely due to the Coulomb force, it originates from the addition of Coulomb and nuclear force, right? So the force the alpha particle has to overcome actually is the nuclear force.
