An electron and a proton are each accelerated through a potential difference of 10.0 million volts. a) What is the kinetic energy of the electron? What is the kinetic energy of the proton? b) Calculate the momentum (MeV/c) of the proton using classical equations. c) Calculate the momentum (MeV/c) of the proton using relati
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. If the proton has an inital speed of 2.4*10^7 m/sec: What is the final velocity after traveling for 2 sec? What is the force acting on the proton? What is the increase in its kinectic energy?
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 =
This is problem 12.34 from Griffiths' third edition of Electrodynamics: In the past, most experiments in particle physics involved stationary targets: one particle (usually a proton or an electron) was accelerated to a high energy E, and collided with a target particle at rest (Fig12.29a). Far higher relative energies are o
