Hi all. I'd personally consider the De Broglie wavelength λ=h/p, with p being the momentum of the electron beam. I get $$\lambda \simeq 0.6 \times 10^{-18} m $$ and since the radius of a quark is ## \leq 10^{-19} m ##, the proton structure can't be resolved. I'm quite sure there's something...
So first I tried to use KE=1/2 x m x v^2 but then realised I didn’t have the velocity and I can’t figure out a way to obtain it. I then tried to work out the energy using a different equation, W= q x v but that left me with 1.28x10^-14 J which seemed too small.
I also then have to calculate the...
Hello all,
I have a question with the helix path of proton in a magnetic field that I am a bit stuck on.
Question:
Equations:
F = qv X B
F = mv^2/r
d=vt
My Attempt:
Think the graph drawn is good enough for questions (a). However, I am stuck on (b) and (c).
Firstly I am not entirely sure...
If I have a beam of protons that go into a block of water, how can I know how many photons will be produced along the beam path?. I'm assuming all the photons have the same energy.
I know that the energy deposition will follow a Bragg Curve, and I think that energy deposition is probably...
I tried to calculted the rotating speed fro a proton from the clasical point of view by using its magnetic moment and the moment of a rotating sphere uniformly charged as example here: https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/physics/8-07-electromagnetism-ii-fall-2012/exams/MIT8_07F12_quizsol2.pdf

I couldn't fit the whole question, it should say
"How close does an electron have to get to a proton to be attracted to it"
And I know it can depend on the speed and direction they are traveling. Can we just pretend they are stationary for this answer please.
By attracted I mean the electron...
If a proton is made of quarks and gluons, what exactly IS a proton? What would it look like if we could shrink down to it's size? Is it really nothing at all, in the same sense as the "solar system" isn't really a thing in itself, it's just a collection of planets and a sun.

An electron and a proton are each placed at rest in an electric ﬁeld of 687 N/C. What is the velocity of the electron 56.5 ns after being released? Consider the direction parallel to the ﬁeld to be positive. The fundamental charge is 1.602×10−19 C, the mass of a proton is...
When do we use the equations of curvature drift ( ΔΒ⊥Β) V∇B= ±1/2u⊥rL (B x ∇B)/B2 and the general VF= c/q (F x B)/B2?
For particles like muons and protons, do they need different equations to calculate a gas' drift velocity, when the gas is made of protons or muons instead of electrons?
Am I...
Why all particles of same type identical? All electrons are identical to each other, all protons are identical..etc. It is as if they are copy pasted from each other!
For me this is one of the biggest mysteries ever, why we don't detect more massive or less massive electrons?
Is it related...
Hi,
I'm simulating in MCNP6 the reaction of proton beam on targets but in the simulation the 96% of the proton are lost for energy cutoff.
I don't understand why happen that. I use a tally4 to obtain the reaction in the target, but I suppose the results are wrong because the lost of protons (if...

A proton is made of quarks and gluons bound by the strong force in a confined system. Further, all protons are basically interchangeable parts for the purposes of this question. Each one is identical in all material respects.
Scientists know a lot about gluon energy density in protons. We have...
Proton is made of 2 up, 1 down quarks
Neutron is made of 2 down, 1 up quarks
The up and down quark have different masses, which account for some of the mass difference. I've also read that hadron masses depend upon the interactions/dynamics inside the particle, not just the quarks contained...

Hello all,
Earlier today I had an electromagnetism exam, and it seems to me that this problem is unsolvable.

Because the furthermost plate is positive, the proton would be repelled towards the screen, so i or iii. How do I know the shape?
QUESTION:
I read in book that in beta + decay proton decays to neutron

Also why it only happen inside nucleus?What does...
1. Homework Statement
The current limit on the proton’s lifetime is determined by observing a large body of water for a long time and noticing that no one of the hydrogen nuclei in H2O have decayed. Assuming that the experiment making this measurement has been going on for 10 years, how many...
A nucleon that consists entirely of two or more protons, would be accelerated evenly, as each proton would see the same force (barring any collisions or other extraneous events.) Each should experience the same force of repulsion or attraction that is causing them to accelerate, so they should...

Hi! I am asked to calculete the portion of antimatter present in protons. I am sayed that this portion is given by:

When protons, due to their electric charge, interact with photons are the quarks somehow also involved in this same electric interaction? After all, the quarks do have fractional electric charges.
