Textbook Problem

Suppose a W− created in a bubble chamber lives for What distance does it move in this time if it is traveling at 0.900 c? Since this distance is too short to make a track, the presence of the W− must be inferred from its decay products. 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 travelled by W particle created in a bubble chamber.

Explanation

Given info:

W particle created in a bubble chamber lives for 5×1025 s and it is travelling at a speed of 0.900c.

Formula used:

If v is the speed and t be the time taken by a particle, then distance travelled by the particle, =vt

Calculation:

t=5×1025 s and v=0.900c=0.900×3×108=2
