A particle of ionizing radiation creates 4000 ion pairs in the gas inside a Geiger tube as it passes through. What minimum energy was deposited, If 30.0 eV is required to create each ion pair?

To determine

The minimum energy deposited in order to create 4000 ion pairs.

Explanation

Given info:

Energy needed to create each ion pair

  Ei=30.0 eV

Number of ion pairs created

  n=4000

Formula used:

The energy deposited to create n pairs of ions is given by,

  E=nEi

Calculation:

Substitute the given values of variables in the formula and calculate the energy deposited
