    Threshold energy particle physics

    E(threshold enrgy) = M* − M(squared) −m(squared) divided by 2M Determine the threshold energy for producing a top quark and an anti-top quark when beams of electrons and positrons of equal energy are made to collide head on. What do i sub in where and what do i with M*. Thanks

    Calculate the lattice constant of caesium chloride

    Calculate the lattice constant of caesium chloride with ionic radii Cs+ 0.167nm and cl- is 0.181 nm I dont really get it, from all the structures i have seen the distance between one atom and the next is (a) or (a/2) but i dont think im right.Any ideas. What is the difference between the...

    Density of states (solid state)

    calculate the density of states and average energy for an elctron gas in 1d,2d and 3d I know the number of states is N= \int_{0}^{infinity} g(e)f(e) de and E = \int_{0}^{infinity} g(e)ef(e) de and g(e) =dN/de

    Yukawa particle

    Hi, i am kind stuck on this question as i don't know what equation to use. doesn't seem to be in any books. By considering possible interactions between protons and neutrons, determine the minimum number of charge states of yukawa's particle. Also why is the interquark force of finite...

    Still do rubbish even though i studied for ages.

    Could someone please help me, and tell me what i am doing wrong or could do better. im doing a physics degree but this time when it came to exams i studied really hard yet i still couldnt remember everything and in the end i recognised everything but couldnt answer the question. i found...

    How to put magnetic field in the wave equation

    Could someone please help, i think this is gauss's law but im not sure how to answer it as they give me a wave equation and i dont know how to put magnetic field in as well. Help would be much appreciated Question suppose that an appropriate device is used to genereate an osccilating...

    Programs With a physics degree only go to a uni where you will be inspired

    I am currently at kings college london physics department and have found the biggest reason i am having problems is because when the lecturers speak they dont speak clear and concisely and they usually have a foreign accent and stress there syalubuls incorrectly.This coupled with the fact of...

    How to solve a second order linear homeogeneous ODE with Frobenius?

    A simple question i think although i cant find in any books What do u when u are solving a second order linear hoemoeneous differential equation with frobenius and there is no shift. (X^2)(y^{''}) (-6y)=0 it should be normal minus -6y I only know what to do if there is...

    The laplace transform/inverse

    Hello can someone please help ive been struggling on this problem for 2 days now. question is calculate the laplace transform of F(P)= 1-P divided by P(squared) + 4P +13 I realise you have to complete the square as denominator is complex When i complete the square i get (P+2) (all...

    Error analysis

    i have 5 values of slit width S 0.0015m 0.0158m 0.00191m 0.0021m 0.00257m the standard error is plus or minus 0.0005 however my teacher says she wants us to calculate ∆S error she says its ∆S=S(subscript 2) - S(subscript 1) she says the answer is 0.0007m WHY IS THIS SO...
