Homework Help: Elementary particle

  1. Mar 13, 2008 #1
    The charge-to mass ratio of the [tex]\pi-[/tex]particle was determined. The charge-to-mas ratio of the electron is 1.76x10^11C/kg. a) predict which particle has a greater mass-the electron, or the [tex]\pi-[/tex]particle. b) use the value of the elmentary charge to calculate the mass of the [tex]\pi-[/tex]particle in kg. Compare the mass of the [tex]\pi-[/tex]particle to the mass of the electron.
    for a) i think charge has greater mass... b) i think i have to use q/m=c/r, but i donot have a value for r.
