If the distance between the first and second minima in the diffraction pattern is 3.00 mm , what is the width of the slit? (in m ) 7 . A 3 . 74 × 10 5 B 5 . 42 × 10 5 C 7 . 86 × 10 5 D 1 . 14 × 10 4 E 1 . 65 × 10 4 1 pt A neon sign in front of a cafe flashes on and off once every 5.50 s, as measured by the head cook. How much time elapses between flashes of the sign as measured by an astronaut in a spaceship moving toward Earth at a speed of 0.806 c? (in s ) 8 . A 9.29 B 1 . 05 × 10 1 C 1 . 19 × 10 1 D 1 . 34 × 10 1 E 1 . 52 × 10 1 1 pt Suppose the speed of light in a vacuum were only 25.5 mi/hr. Calculate the length of a bicycle being ridden at a speed of 19.6 mi/hr as measured by an observer sitting on a park bench, given that its proper length is 1.88 m. (in m ) 9 . A 9 . 04 × 10 1 B 1.20 C 1.60 D 2.13 E 2.83 1 pt An asteroid with a mass of 6.92E+11 kg is observed to have a relativistic momentum of magnitude 7.85E+20 kg*m/s. What is the speed of the asteroid relative to the observer?...
