    Maximum angle of deflection

    Homework Statement Hey, I was studying this problem and solution (by Rudy Arthur): What I wasn't sure was why this solution only works for m<M. At which point did we restrict ourselves to m<M. How about when...

    Uncertainty Principle Question

    Let's say a proton is confined to some diameter, d. What would be the uncertainty in the position? In some questions they use delx as (1/2)d as the uncertainty in position. In other cases they use the entire d as the uncertainty. This is extremely confusing...

    Bragg X-Ray Scattering

    1. Question A cubic crystal of interatomic spacing of 0.24 nm is used to select gamma–rays of energy 100 keV from a radioactive source containing a continuum of energies. If the incident beam is normal to the crystal, at what angle with respect to the incident beam do the 100 keV...

    Force Between the Strands of DNA Molecule.

    Homework Statement The question can be found on this link. It is the last question, the one with the DNA molecules. Prof said that the direction is not important, he is just looking for a magnitude.
