Problem 74

A good rule of thumb is to use relativistic equationswhenever the kinetic energies determined classicallyand relativistically differ by more than 1%. Find thespeeds when this occurs for (a) electrons and (b)protons.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Notes 10/12 Extrasolar Planets (detection)  Indirect methods: o Doppler wobble technique—  Two rules of Doppler shifting:  1. (a) Objects moving toward you appear “blueshifted” (shorter waves) (b) Objects moving away appear “redshifted” (longer waves)  2. The amount of shift is proportional to radial velocity o Radial meaning along line of sight; parallel to radius What do we deduce 1. Amplitude of wobble (V orbitor star/planet) if system is edge-on 2. How long it takes to repeat itself (period) Perio
