Structure of Matter

  1. Sep 11, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. Relevant equations unknown

    3. The attempt at a solution unsufficient amount of knowledge. Originally I thought this might've been a coefficient of friction problem with K as Kinetic energy and v as velocity... but that isn't really the structure of matter.

    This is considerably easier than a friction problem.

    You should consult a modern physics textbook with a section on cosmic rays and particle reactions. For instance v is not friction it is a neutrino. The others are pions, muons, photons etc.
