Unformatted text preview: Quiz Solutions 1 Evaluate p . [2 Points] 2 p = n e e 2 m e = (2 10- 8 m- 3 )(1 . 6 10- 19 C ) 2 (9 . 11 10- 31 kg )(8 . 85 10- 12 F m ) = 6 . 3505 10- 5 C 2 m 2 kgF (1) Units : 1 C 2 m 2 kgF = 1 s- 2 (2) p = . 0007969 Hz (3) 2 Find the phase velocity v ph . [2 Points] So we begin by looking at the dispersion relations weve been given 2 = 2 p + k 2 c 2 v ph = k = q 2 p + k 2 c 2 k = 1 k q 2 p + k 2 c 2 = r p k 2 + c 2 (4) 3 Find the group velocity v g . [2 Points] v g = d dk = d dk q 2 p + k 2 c 2 = 1 2 ( 2 p + k 2 c 2 )- 1 / 2 (2 kc 2 ) = kc 2 q 2 p + k 2 c 2 (5) 4 Find the time difference in arrival times of two pulses moving through interstellar space with 1 = 1GHz and 1 = 2GHz. [2 Points] First we begin by putting the v g in terms of . We use v g because this is the speed at which a pulse will travel. v g = kc 2 q 2 p + k 2 c 2 (6) We now solve for k using the dispersion relation and plug into (6). k = 2- 2...
