(Optical Fiber)
A typical optical fiber has a
cylindrical core with an index of refraction of 1.62 wrapped by a cladding jacket
whose index of refraction is 1.52. The diameter of the core is 50 m (mic

An electron is accelerated from rest to a speed where its total energy is equal to
twice its rest energy.
(a) How much energy did it take to do this?
(b) How fast is t
