What is the total kinetic energy carried away by the particles of the following decays?

  1. π 0 γ + γ

  • K 0 π + + π
  • + n + π +
  • 0 Λ 0 + γ .
  • To determine

    (a)

    The total kinetic energy of the particle of decay process 1.

    Explanation

    Given:

    The reaction of the decay of the particle 1 is,

      π0γ+γ

    Formula Used:

    The kinetic energy of the decay process 1 is given by,

      E1=Δm1c2

    Here, Δm1 is the rest mass of the particle 1, and c is the speed of light.

    The rest mass of the particle 1 is given by,

      Δm1=mK0mγ

    Here, mK0 is the mass of nucleus of particle K0, and mγ is the mass of γ photon

    To determine

    (b)

    The total kinetic energy of the particle of decay process 2.

    To determine

    (c)

    The total kinetic energy of the particle of decay process 3.

    To determine

    (d)

    The total kinetic energy of the particle of decay process 4.
