Problem 74E

Adding a proton to a nucleus The nucleus of an atom is positively charged because it consists of positively charged protons and uncharged neutrons. To bring a free proton toward a nucleus, a repulsive force F(r)=kqQ/r2 must be overcome, where q =1.6 × 10−19C is the charge on the proton, k = 9 × 109 N-m2/C2, Q is the charge on the nucleus, and r is the distance between the center of the nucleus and the proton. Find the work required to bring a free proton (assumed to be a point mass) from a large distance (r → ∞) to the edge of a nucleus that has a charge Q = 50q and a radius of 6 × 10−11 m.
