Chapter 41 495 In the first excited state, level 2, the node-to-node distance is half as long as in state 1. The momentum is two times larger and the energy is four times larger: K = 822 . M e V . The proton has mass, has charge, moves slowly compared to light in a standing wave state, and stays inside the nucleus. When it falls from level 2 to level 1, its energy change is 205 616 .. . MeV MeV MeV −= . Therefore, we know that a photon (a traveling wave with no mass and no charge) is emitted at the speed of light, and that it has an energy of + M e V . Its frequency is f E h == ×× ×⋅ 6 16 10 1 60 10 6626 10 149 10 61 9 34 21 . . eV J eV Js Hz ej e j . And its wavelength is λ × × c f 300 10 202 10 8 21 1 13 . . . ms s m. This is a gamma ray, according to the electromagnetic spectrum chart in Chapter 34. P41.10 The ground state energy of a particle (mass m ) in a 1-dimensional box of width L is E h mL 1 2 2 8 = .
