Lab 10: VPython Rutherford Scattering (Lab) BRANDON JARROTT FELDKAMP PHYS 2211, section M, Fall 2008 Instructor: Jennifer Curtis Web Assign Current Score: 30 out of 30 Due: Monday, November 10, 2008 09:00 AM EST Description VPython program to model an alpha particle colliding with a gold nucleus. Instructions Answer the questions below, and read directions carefully before submitting your program. The due date for this assignment is past. Your work can be viewed below, but no changes can be made. 1. 6/6 points Answer the following questions using the Rutherford scattering program you wrote in lab. Make sure you use the recommemded starting location for the alpha particle (2e-13 m to the left of the gold nucleus) , and the recommended value of deltat (1e-23 s) , and an initial momentum of the alpha particle at the starting location that corresponds to a kinetic energy of 10.0 MeV (10 million electron volts), with the gold nucleus initially at rest (as described in the handout). Report values of the scattering angle (in degrees) produced when you run your program using the
