------ _____-L-. Quiz 9- 22 April 2008 Name: _ Recitation Day/Time 1.. The mass of a muon is 207 times the mass of the electron, and the aveage lifetime of a muon at rest is 2.20 flS. In an accelerator experiment, muons are measured to have an average lifetime of 69.0 flS. For the moving muons, find the following: i. Lorentz factor (1 points). 11. Kinetic energy (l points). 111. Momentum (l points). IV. Distance travelled in the accelerator before decay(2 points). re::!!j =- /Ji c X ::J- 07 '/. . iii ill
