Answer to Question #1845 in Mechanics | Relativity for ken
A proton is moving at 425 m/s. (a) How much work must be done on it to stop it?(answer in joules) (A proton has a mass of 1.67×10−27 kg.) (b) Assume the net braking force acting on it has magnitude 8.01×10−16 N and is directed opposite to its initial velocity. Over what distance must the force be applied?(in meters) Watch your negative signs in this problem.
(a) While moving with a speed of 425 m/s proton has the following kinetic energy: K = mv2/2 = 1.67×10−27* 4252/2 = 1.51×10−22 J Required work is equal to this energy.
(b) S = A/F = 1.51×10−22 / 8.01×10−16 N = 0.189×10−6 m.
I just wanted to say thank you guys so much for helping me get through my statistics class. Any area in math has never been my strong field and thanks to you guys I was still able to pass my course.
thanks to you and all the people on your team that helped in me passing my course. :-)
