(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

its asking me if if it is easier to use the mass units

2. Relevant equations

PART A

3. The attempt at a solution

its it easier to to use numbers given becuz

when add the numbers

(3.9) / ( 1 - 16 / (16+133) ) = 4.3 = kinetic energy needed for O ionize C

4.3 > 4 therefore, O will not ionize

right?

the answer is YES
