Solutions for Hand-In Set #12 PHYS 212 – Spring 2007 Supplemental Reading — 5.4 To complete this problem, use the same steps as in 5.3, but in reverse: use “distance = speed × time” (with c as a speed) to get an estimate of Δ t ; then use the time- energy uncertainty principle to get an estimate of Δ E , and thereby m . If the range is 100 m, then the typical lifetime of the virtual particle would be t = d c = 100 m 3 × 10 8 m/s = 3 . 3 × 10 - 7 s . The energy-time uncertainty principle, Δ E Δ t ¯ h gives Δ E = ¯ h Δ t = 6 . 63 × 10 - 34 J · s 2 π × 3 . 33 × 10 - 7 s = 3 . 17 × 10 - 28 J = 1 . 98 × 10 - 9 eV . So the mass of the hypothetical particle would be about m = 2 × 10 - 9 eV/ c 2 .
