Particle Questions 1. If an electron is somewhere near a nucleus estimate the uncertainty in the momentum of this particle? 2. A proton has mass 1.0078U what is the energy equivalence? 3. Classify the following particles 1) muon 2) lambda 3) kaon 4. Are the following possible 1) p + e n+υ + 2) e + e γ+γ 5. What is the minimum energy possible to create a proton-antiproton pair 6. An electron is accelerated to 10GeV calculate a) momentum b) de Broglie wavelength 7. In the LHC 3000 bunches of particles accelerate around the ring. Each bunch contains 1011 particles and each particle has 7TeV of energy a) calculate the total energy of the beam in joules b) if 50000 tonne ship had a KE the same as a) how fast would it be travelling 8.
