Problem 3P

Problem 3P

Copper atoms have 29 protons in their nuclei. If the copper nucleus is a sphere with a diameter of 4.8 × 10−15 m, find the work required to bring an alpha particle (charge = +2e) from rest at infinity to the "surface" of the nucleus.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 3P

Step 1 of 3

Here, we have to calculate the work required to bring an alpha particle from infinity to the surface of a copper nucleus.

The equation for the work done,

Where,  - Electrostatic potential

- Charge of the particle

Step 2 of 3

Step 3 of 3
