In the user document,
There are some statements about them:
• Geometrical step length (step length before the correction of multiple scattering) • True step length (step length after the correction of multiple scattering)
However, in the G4Step class, I can only see one member function GetStepLength().
How can I know its return value is the geometrical step length or true step length?
Another question is, MSC physics process only affects the direction of the particle, but I could not understand how it works along one step. It is a continuous process along one step. It is easy to understand if it happens at post step point.
