answer according to Halliday and Resnick x=240m
I got it all, and I have to find how much distance was travelled by the deuteron in the cyclotron, from starting of acceleration to the end of it.
The Attempt at a Solution
From the potential across the dees I get
Since I know the final speed I can find the amount of turns the deuteron was in the cyclotron
Since f is constant, so is T and I can find the amount of time spent in the cyclotron:
The acceleration must be constant, the accelerating voltage is not changing
The answer in the book is 240m, which differs from mine ten times, smells like a power error?
Or am I doing something wrong?
