10.26. Model: This is a case of a perfectly elastic collision between a proton and a carbon atom. The collision obeys the momentum as well as the energy conservation law. Visualize: Solve: PiP CiC PfP CfC 22 22 P i PC i CP f f C Momentum conservation: ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 11 11 Energy conservation: ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) xx xx mv +=+ These two equations can be solved, as described in the text through Equations 10.39 to 10.43: 77 P P fP P C iP P P 76 PP fC iP P P 12 ( ) ( ) (2.0 10 m/s)
