"neutron collides elastically with a helium nucleus"
A neutron collides elastically with a helium nucleus (at rest initially) whose mass is four times that of the neutron. The helium nucleus is observed to rebound at an angle θ'2 = 40° from the neutron's initial...
A tennis ball of mass m = 0.087 kg and speed v = 43 m/s strikes a wall at a 45° angle and rebounds with the same speed at 45° (Fig. 7-29). What is the impulse given the wall?
Impulse = M x V
Sin (theta) = opp/hyp
