(c) This is 63 times the U.S. yearly use. The energy cost of accelerating a rocket to these speeds is immense. 27.49. Set Up: and Equation 27.24 says Solve: (a) says (b) so and If is neglected, the left side of Equa- tion 27.24 is and the right side is The percent difference is Reflect: The total energy of a particle increases without limit as 27.50. Set Up: The energy released is The change in gravitational potential energy is Solve: (a) (b) (c) 27.51. Set Up: For an electron The classical expression for kinetic energy is Solve: (a) (b) gives Reflect: At a given speed the relativistic value of the kinetic energy is larger than the nonrelativistic value. There- fore, for a given kinetic energy the relativistic expression for kinetic energy gives a smaller speed than the nonrela- tivistic expression. 27.52. Set Up: K in electronvolts equals in volts. For an electron The classical expression for kinetic energy is Solve: (a) (b) E 5 K 1 mc 2 5 1.60 3 10 5 eV 1 5.12 3 10 5 eV 5 6.72 3 10 5 eV 5 0.672 MeV mc 2 5 8.20 3 10 2 14 J 5 5.12 3 10 5 eV.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
