1. You should the know the answers to the “Special Theory of Relativity Study Questions” and the “Nuclear Physics Study Questions” that appear on the next two pages of this document. In addition, you should know how to do the following quantitative problems: 2. Find the time interval or length measured by an observer given the time interval or length measured by another observer who is moving relative to the first observer. 3. Use the Lorentz velocity transform to find the velocity of an object measured by an observer given the object’s velocity measured by another observer who is moving relative to the first observer. 4. Find the total energy of a moving particle. Find the kinetic energy of a moving particle. Find the momentum of a moving particle. 5. Find the amount of energy required to accelerate a particle to a certain speed. 6. Find the energies of the two gamma rays produced in the annihilation of a particular matter/antimatter pair. Find the minimum energy required for a gamma ray to create a particular matter/antimatter pair.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
