Unformatted text preview: Using Figure 2.10 in Knoll, determine the energy loss of the alpha beam in the gold foil. Hint: for thin targets the stopping power can be considered to be relatively constant. 6. A neutron elastically scatters off of a proton. Show that the angle (in the laboratory frame) between a recoil proton and the corresponding scattered neutron is always 90°....
