Textbook Problem

What length track does a π + traveling at 0.100c leave in a bubble chamber if it is created there and lives for 2.60 × 10 8 s ? (Those moving faster or living longer may escape the detector before decaying.)

To determine

The distance that π+ travels in its lifetime.

Explanation

Given:

The distance travelled (s)=0.100c.

The time (t)=2.60×108s.

Formula used:

The speed is given by,

  s=dt

Calculation:

The distance is calculated as,

  d=(0.100c)(2.60× 10 8s)=(0
