We use the same procedure as in part 1
again. We already know the length of ~ D, so
p
we just need the length of ~ E :

C and D . Answer in kg m =s.
Correct answer:
Explanation: 1:36875 kg m =s. Between which two locations is the magnitude
of the change in momentum greatest?
1. Between points B and C
2. Between points D and E correct
3. Between points C and D
Explanation: cai (atc667) { homework 03 { turner { (57345) 5 Speed is just the magnitude of the velocity,
so no vectors are involved. We just need to
carry out the multiplication An electron travels at speed

The electron travels in the direction given by
the unit vector

Relativistically, the magnitude of momentum is given by 2 You can simplify the calculation if you notice
