1. You have a laser with an output of 10,000 watts in a .02m diameter beam. Find the radiation pressure.
2. If you have a reflective surface of mass .002kh on the earth, can you lift this with the laser?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 5, 2021, 1:14 am ad1c9bdddf
Power, P = 10000 Watt
Cross-sectional diameter, d= 0.02 m
speed of light, c = 3*10^8 m/s
Because, force due to a laser radiation beam, F = change in ...
The solution shows the steps to find the force generated due to a laser radiation beam and work out if that can lift a given mass on Earth.
