1)Find the mass of one nucleus of the unknown element. Express your answer in terms of the proton mass m

2)What is the speed of the unknown nucleus immediately after such a collision?

**bobpursley**, Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 6:26amMomentum:

p is mass of a proton

M is the mass of the nuclei

p*2.4E7=Mv' + p(-2.1E7)

KEnergy:

1/2 p (2.4E7)^2=1/2 M v'^2 + 1/2 p (-2.1E7)^2

Two equations, two unknowns: Let algebra go to work. Solve for v' in the first equation in terms of M

then, put that expression for v' into the second equation. It will work out.

**HANNE**, Sunday, October 28, 2012 at 5:19amand, M= 5.66525677E-39

V' = 7.52679E-20/5.66525677E-39

is this correct???

V' = 7.52679E-20/5.66525677E-39 = 1.328587618E19

is this correct???
