Consider a collision in which a stationary particle with mass M is bombarded by a particle with mass m, speed v0, and total energy (including rest energy) Em. (a) Use the Lorentz transformation to write the velocities v m and vM of particles m and M in terms of the speed vcm of the center of momentu...

You have entered a graduate program in particle physics and are learning about the use of symmetry. You begin by repeating the analysis that led to the prediction of the ?- particle. Nine of the spin@3 2 baryons are four ? particles, each with mass 1232 MeV>c2, strangeness 0, and charges +2e, +e, 0,...

The decay products from the decay of shortlived unstable particles can provide evidence that these particles have been produced in a collision experiment. As an initial step in designing an experiment to detect short-lived hadrons, you make a literature study of their decays. Table 44.3 gives experi...

The K0 meson has rest energy 497.7 MeV. A K0 meson moving in the +x-direction with kinetic energy 225 MeV decays into a p+ and a p-, which move off at equal angles above and below the +x-axis. Calculate the kinetic energy of the p+ and the angle it makes with the +x-axis. Use relativistic expression...
