# A neutron beam of energy E scatters from atoms on a surface with a spacing d = 0.1nm. The first maximum of intensity in the reflected beam occurs at θ = 30°. What is the kinetic energy E of the beam in eV?

Answer :

From Bragg’s Law, we have

Here, n is the order, λ is the wavelength, d is the lattice spacing and ϴ is the angle of scattering.

Using the values given in the question to find , (note 1nm = 10^{-9}m)

Kinetic Energy of the beam can be given by

Here m is mass of the neutron.

Converting to eV by dividing by 1.6 X 10^{-19}

The de Broglie wavelength of a photon is twice the de Broglie wavelength of an electron. The speed of the electron is . Then

Physics - ExemplarTwo particles A_{1} and A_{2} of masses m_{1}, m_{2} (m_{1} > m_{2}) have the same de Broglie wavelength. Then

A proton and an α-particle are accelerated, using the same potential difference. How are the de Broglie wavelengths λ_{p} and λ_{a} related to each other?

Show that it is not possible for a photon to be completely absorbed by a free electron
