Exact solutions are obtained for the diffusion in single- and square-well potentials, by using the Laplace transform method. We compare transmission of a classical particle through one barrier of given length and through two barriers with a well between them of the same overall length. It turns out that the existence of a well facilitates the transmission of a classical particle for intermediate times, which bears some resemblance to resonances tunneling through quantum barriers.
