An electron-positron pair moves with velocity v=c(beta) in frame O. Annihilation of the pair produces two photons of energies E1 and E2 emerging at angles theta(1) and theta(2), with respect to the velocity (v). Find expressions for the energies E1 and E2 in terms of the electronmass, the speed (beta) and angle theta(1).

We can solve this problem by performing a Lorentz transform to the rest frame of the positron. Working in c = 1 units, the four-momentum vector of the photons can be denoted as:

q1 = (E1, p1)

and

q2 = (E1,p2)

where |p1| = E1. Let's choose the x-component in the direction of the velocity, then p1 = (p1x,p1y,p1z), and
p1x = |p1|cos(theta1) = E1 cos(theta1). Similarly, we have |p2| = E2, and p2x = |p2|cos(theta2) = E2 cos(theta2). The components of q1 and q2 in the rest frame of the positron are obtained by performing a Lorentz boost with velocity v in the x-direction:

E1' = gamma(v) (E1 - v p1x) = gamma(v) [E1 - v E1 cos(theta1)] = gamma(v) ...

This theory is applied in the following way:
? Consider molecules (or ions) in which the central atom is covalently bonded to two or more atoms or groups
? Consider all the valence electron pairs of the central atom-both those that are shared in covalen

A point charge q = -3.5 x 10-10 C is fixed at the origin, as shown below. Where must an electron be placed relative to the point charge so that the electric force acting on the electron is exactly opposite to its own weight? Include a sketch showing the position of the charges (it does not need to be to scale, but it must show c

The kinetics of an aqueous phase decomposition of A is investigated in two CSTR's in series, the first having half the volume of the second. At steady state with a feed concentration of 4 gmol/lit., and mean residence time of 65 sec in the second reactor, the concentration of feed to second from the first is found to b
