Magnetism 155 19.32 Since the centripetal acceleration is furnished by the magnetic force acting on the ions, 2 mv qvB r = or the radius of the path is mv r qB = . Thus, the distance between the impact points (that is, the difference in the diameters of the paths followed by the U and the isotopes) is 238 235 U ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 238 235 238 235 5 27 19 2 2 2 3.00 10 m s kg 238 u 235 u 1.66 10 u 1.60 10 C 0.600 T v d r r m m qB = = × = × × or 2 3.11 10 m 3.11 cm d = × = 19.33 In the perfectly elastic, head-on collision between the -particle α and the initially stationary proton, conservation of momentum requires that m v 0 m v m v α α α p p + = while conservation of kinetic energy also requires that ( ) or p p v v α α 0 0 v 0 v v v = − = + .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
