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. 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?
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
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.
Given: The charge on the electron is qe = 1.60218 *10 ^-19 C. Given: The mass of the electron is me = 9.10939 * 10 ^-31 kg. What is an electron's momentum, if it is accelerated across a 6 mm potential difference 15.6 mV?
Take the mass of a proton to be 1GeV (=1000MeV). Find the velocity (beta) of a proton whose kinetic energy is: 100 MeV 2 GeV 10 GeV 100 GeV According to Newtonian theory, the kinetic energy (mv^2/2) of a particle is c is equal to mc^2/2, which we now recognize as half of its rest energy. What is the actual (relativistic
1. Can you express the rest mass of the electron in electron volts. 2. Compute the kinetic energy of a.) an electron b.) a proton traveling at .99c. 3. At what velocity (beta) does the kinetic energy of an electron equal its rest energy?
What must be the momentum of a particle with mass "m" so that the total energy of the particle is exactly 3 times its rest energy? The answer must be in terms of mc. Possible answers: a.) 3.45 mc b.) 2.83 mc c.) 5.17 mc d.) 0.045mc e.) 6.66 mc.
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 =
Consider a classical "degree of freedom" that is linear rather than quadratic: E = c|q| for some constant c. (An example would be the kinetic energy of a highly relativistic particle in one dimension, written in terms of its momentum.) Repeat the derivation of the equipartition theorem for this system, and show that the average
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
