Quiz 10- 27 April 2009 Name: o ------+----- J Recitation Da~/Time _ 1. The mass of a muon is 207 times the mass of the electron, and the average lifetime of a muon at rest is 2.20 J.ls. In an accelerator experiment, muons are measured to have an average lifetime of 69.0 J.ls. For the moving muons, find the following: 1. Calculate the wavelength of a photon having an energy of 6.2x10- 15 J. 11. Calculate the wavelength of a photon having a momentum of 3.8 x10- 24 kg.mls.
