Homework Help: Head to tail bunch differential acceleration

  1. May 3, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Calculate the head to tail bunch differential acceleration from beam loading on an RF cavity.

    2. Relevant equations

    Frequency 201 MHz
    Stored energy varies as E^2
    Acceleration varies as E
    Use any other variables that might be needed

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Don't really know where to start. I've done my best to understand the concept. I know that once the beam enters the cavity, it becomes pulsed at the same frequency as the RF. I just need someone to concisely explain what I'm supposed to be calculating so I can do the rest of the work myself.
