Unformatted text preview: relativistic formula for the magnitude of momentum is Clearly, a x(0) = 0 : prel = m v = p non : Find a y(0) : So we need to nd Correct answer: 6. Explanation: Taking the y component of the acceleration: a y(0) = 6 : =s : 1 1 0:999 c c = 22 :3663: 2 Now we can plug in: Find a z(0) : Correct answer: 0. Explanation: Taking the z component of the acceleration: a z(0) = prel = p non = (22 :3663)(5 :01398 10−19 kg m =s) = 1 :12144 10−17 kg m =s : 42(0) = 0 : A proton in an accelerator is traveling at a speed of 0 :999 c. If you use the approximate nonrelativistic formula for the magnitude of momentum of the proton, what answer do you get? Answer in kg m =s. (The mass of the proton is 1 :673 10−27 kg) Your answer must be within 5.0% −19 Correct answer: 5 :01398 10 kg m =s. Explanation: The approximate nonrelativistic formula for the magnitude of momentum is pnon = m v: Plugging in, we obtain pnon = (1 :673 10−27 kg)(0 :999 3 = 5 :01398 10−19 kg m =s : 108 m =s) The approximate value from part 1 is significantly too low. Approximately, what is the ratio of magnitudes: prel =? pnon Your answer must be within Correct answer: 22 :3663. 5.0% Explanation: We just take the ratio of our answers: prel 1:12144 = pnon 5:01398 10−17 10−19 kg m =s = 22 :3663 : kg m =s...
