MUONs problem---pl\ help Hi Guys! well! i came across a terrible type of problem which includes particles named MUONS. plz help me in solving this numerical: It goes like this: "MUONs are the particles having masss about 207 times that of electron. they are present in the cosmic rays. Muons are captured by atoms and orbit like electrons. However muons will orbit much closer to the nucleus than any electron. a) calculate the radius of a muon in orbit when captured by a uranium atom b)how much energy would be liberated if the muon was initially at the rest before being captured? c)the radius of the uranium nucleus is 7.5fm. how does your answer in (a) compare with this number? ur early reply shall be highly appreciated! thanks in advance!
