Estimate the neutron energy needed to produce fission of 208Pb. Is it likely that such neutrons woould be released in the resulting fission?
A beam of light is reflected off the surface of some unknown liquid, and the light is examined with a linear sheet polarizer. It is found that when the central axis of the polarizer (that is, perpendicular to the plane of the sheet) is tilted down from the vertical at an...
Show that the group velocity
can be written as
where v = phase velocity
The Attempt at a Solution
dω/dk = d(kv)/dk= v+k(dv/dk)= v+ck(d(n^-1)/dk) =v-(ck/n^2)(dn/dk)...
A massless hoop is suspended horizontally and is free to rotate about a vertical axis through its center with a constant angular velocity (omega). Attached to the edge of the hoop is a simple pendulum that is restricted to oscillate in only the radial direction. find the...
A thin rod of length 2b is suspended by 2 light strings both attached to the ceiling. Using x, y1, y2 as your generalized coordinates right down the lagrangian of the system. Where x is the longitudinal displacement of the rod and y1 and y2 are the horizontal displacements...
