Compute the 7) Pions have a X beam half-life of 1.8 10-8 s A pion leaves a particle accelerator at a speed of 0.8c. At what is the expected distance over which half of the pions should decay classically? Relativistically? 8) Rocket A travels to the right and rocket B travels to the left, with speeds of 0.8c and 0.6c, respectively relative to the Earth. What is the velocity of rocket A measured from rocket B? 9) Consider a radioactive nucleus that moves with a constant speed of 0.5c relative to the laboratory. The nucleus decays and emits an electron with a speed of 0.8c relative to the nucleus along the direction of motion. Find the velocity of the electron in the laboratory frame. 10) Suppose the Doppler shift in wavelength of the sodium D2 line (589.0 nm) is 10 nm when the light is observed from a distant star, Determine the star's velocity of recession.
