Textbook Problem

Suppose a W created in a particle detector lives for 5.00 × 10 25 s . What distance does it move in this time if it is traveling at 0.900c? (Note that the time is longer than the given W lifetime, which can be due to the statistical nature of decay or time dilation.)

To determine

The distance that W travels in its lifetime.

Explanation

Given:

The distance travelled (s)=0.900c.

The time (t)=5.0×1025s.

Formula used:

The speed is given by,

  s=dtd=s×t

Calculation:

The distance is calculated as,

  d=(0.900c)(5.00× 10 25s)=(0.900×3× 108m/s)(5
