Question

A neutron collides elastically with a helium nucleus (at rest initially) whose mass is four times that of the neutron. The helium nucleus is observed to rebound at an angle '2 = 42° from the neutron's initial direction. The neutron's initial speed is 6.8 105 m/s.

a. Determine the angle at which the neutron rebounds, '1, measured from its initial direction. (in degrees) b. What is the speed of the neutron after the collision? c. What is the speed of the helium nucleus after the collision?

A proton, moving with a velocity of
viî, collides elastically with
another proton that is initially at rest. Assuming that after the
collision the speed of the initially moving proton is 0.60 times
the speed of the proton initially at rest, find the following.
(a) the speed of each proton after the collision in terms of
vi
initially moving proton
Your response is within 10% of the correct value. This may be due
to roundoff error, or you could have...

A proton with an initial speed of 1.82 ✕ 108 m/s in the +x
direction collides elastically with another proton initially at
rest. The first proton's velocity after the collision is 1.454 ✕
108 m/s at an angle of 37.0° with the +x-axis.
What is the velocity (magnitude and direction) of the second
proton after the collision? magnitude m/s
direction ? ° counterclockwise from the +x-axis

One electron collides elastically with a second electron
initially at rest. After the collision, the radii of their
trajectories are 1.00 cm and 2.60 cm. The trajectories are
perpendicular to a uniform magnetic field of magnitude 0.0560 T.
Determine the energy (in keV) of the incident electron.

One electron collides elastically with a second electron
initially at rest. After the collision, the radii of their
trajectories are 1.50 cm and 3.20 cm. The trajectories are
perpendicular to a uniform magnetic field of magnitude 0.0380 T.
Determine the energy (in keV) of the incident electron.

A uranium-238 nucleus at rest undergoes radioactive decay,
splitting into an alpha particle (helium nucleus) with mass
6.64×10-27 kg and a thorium nucleus with mass 3.89×10-25 kg. The
measured kinetic energy of the alpha particle is 4.01×10-13 J. If
after the decay, the alpha particle is observed to move in the
positive x direction. After the decay, what direction did the
thorium nucleus move? Complete the following statement with less
than, greater than or equal to. After the decay, the...

A mass of is initially moving in the 2.5 m/s in the +x direction
and collides in a perfectly elastically with a mass of moving in
the -x direction at 7.6 m/s. After the collision, the mass that was
moving in the +x direction originally is moving in the -x direction
at 8.6 m/s. What is the velocity of the other mass after collision
in m/s? Indicate -x direction, by including a negative sign.

A ball of mass 0.305kg that is moving with a speed of 5.7m/s

rest. Immediately after the collision, the incoming ball bounces
backward with a speed of 3.3m/s.
Calculate the velocity of the target ball after the
collision.
Calculate the mass of the target ball.

A curling stone of mass 20 kg and initially traveling at 2.0 m/s
collides head-on with a lighter stone of mass 15 kg which is
initially at rest. After the collision the struck stone has a speed
of 1.6 m/s in the same direction as the initial velocity of the
heavy stone. a) What is the final velocity of the heavy stone? b)
Is this collision elastic? Explain. If the collision is not
elastic, find the macroscopic energy lost in...

A 5.0-kg mass moving at 8.0 m/s collides head-on with a 3.0-kg
mass initially at rest If the collision is perfectly elastic, what
is the speed of the masses just after the collision? Is the kinetic
energy conserved?
