    Relativistic Energy

    While length decreases between two points at high speeds, the mass of an object will increase. This has a significant effect on what the object is capable of doing. Einstein’s famous relationship for energy is: E=mc^2 This includes both the kinetic energy and rest mass energy for a particle. The kinetic energy of a high speed particle can be calculated from: KE=mc^2-m_0 c^2 The relativistic energy of particle can also be expressed in terms of its momentum in the expression E=mc^2= √(p^2 c^2+ m_0^2 c^4 ) The relativistic energy expression is what is used to calculate binding energies of nuclei and the energy yields of nuclear fission and fusion. © BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com April 12, 2024, 5:46 pm ad1c9bdddf

    Find the maximum energy of alpha particles emitted by accelerated beam of Po-210

    The alpha decay of Po-210 to Pb-206 releases approximately 5.4 MeV of energy, of which 5.3 MeV is the kinetic energy of the alpha particle and 0.1 MeV is the recoil energy of Pb-206. Suppose that we have a beam of Po-210 ions with a kinetic energy of 100 TeV incident on a target. Occasionally a Po-210 ion will decay and emit an

    A proton (m=1.67*10^-27kg) is being accelerated along a straight line at 3.6*10^5 m/sec ^2 in a machine.

    Accelerating an Electron Between Two Parallel Plates

    An electron (mass m = 9.11E-31 kg) is accelerated in the uniform field E (E = 1.64E+4 N/C) between two parallel charged plates. The separation of the plates is 1.33 cm. The electron is accelerated from rest near the negative plate and passes through a tiny hole in the positive plate, as seen in the figure above. With what speed

    Kinetic Energy of a Moving Object

    The kinetic Energy (K) of a moving object varies jointly with its mass (m) and the square of its velocity (v). If an object weighing 90 kilograms and moving with a velocity of 20 meters per second has a kinetic energy of 4500 Joules, find its kinetic energy when the velocity is 32 meters per second.

    What Kinetic Energy Must this Beam Proton Have?

    In the Tevatron accelerator/storage ring at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, two beams of protons travel in opposite directions each with a total energy of 1 TeV and interact. Since these beams have momenta of equal magnitude but opposite direction, they interact in their center of momentum inertial frame. Hence s2 =

    Equipartition theorem for the (relativistic) case E = c|q|

    Consider a classical "degree of freedom" that is linear rather than quadratic: E = c|q| for some constant c.

Repeat the derivation of the equipartition theorem for this system, and show that the average
