(a) Find the velocity of a neutron that has a 6.00-fm wavelength (about the size of a nucleus). Assume the neutron is nonrelativistic. (b) What is the neutron's kinetic energy in MeV?

To determine

(a)

Find the velocity of a neutron that has a 6.00fm wavelength. Assume the neutron is not relativistic.

Explanation

Given:

Wavelength of neutron is λ=6.00fm

Formula used:

Using De Broglie )

  vneutron=hmneutronλneutron

Calculation:

Inserting data given, we obtain

  vneutron=6.62×1034kgm2/s(1

To determine

(b)

What is the neutron's kinetic energy in MeV?
