A transmission electron microscope uses the wave properties of electrons to study things too small to be observed using an optical microscope. A potential difference is used to accelerate the electrons into a beam. If the de Broglie wavelength of the electrons in a particular beam is 1.0 × 10 (a) −10 m, calculate the momentum of an electron in the beam.

Carbon-15 and Nitrogen-15 both have the same mass number and in principle can transform into each other as shown below: Reaction I: 15 6 C →15 N + −01 β + υ 7 Reaction II: 15 7 N →15 C + +01 β + υ 6 Their nuclear masses are given in the table below: Isotope Carbon-15, Nuclear mass / u 15 6 Nitrogen-15, (a) C 15.007 306 15 7 14.996 265 N Explain, without doing any calculations, which reaction can take place spontaneously.
