Unformatted text preview: onds which align themselves such that the angle between the atoms is . For simplicity, it is safe to assume the cosmic ray path is directed at the carbon ion (charge perpendicular to the linear bonds. If the proton reaches a distance less than the bond length of the carbonoxygen bond, then the bonds can break. The bond length between carbon and oxygen is and the charge on the oxygen ions are . (a) Considering only the electric interactions, at what minimum speed must a proton have initially in order to accomplish this? (b) What is the electric force on the cosmic ray proton when it is at the minimum distance?
