Unformatted text preview: the equilibrium temperature in terms of its sound speed cs and the aforementioned parameters. (b) If the temperature is perturbed from its equilibrium value by an amount ΔTd, calculate the time constant τT for the grain to restore its equilibrium temperature. You may assume |ΔTd|<<Td. (c) Suppose that the grain actually receives photons stochastically, i.e. it receives energy in packets of energy EUV, at a mean rate ΓUV = Leq/EUV. Derive a formula for the value of the grain temperature perturbation ΔTd(t) at time t in terms of the arrival times of all previous photons. [Hint: Remembe...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
