... When E(k) is as in problem 2, the semiclassical equations of motion are linear, and
therefore easily solved.
a) Assuming that the mean free time between electron collisions is τ , show that
the DC conductivity is given by
σ = ne2 τ M−1
b) Rederive the result of the problem 2 by finding explicitly th ...

... A 50 kg Christina went
running at 5 m/s and a
gust of wind slowed her
down to 3 m/s. What is
the momentum of his new

... mass M2 hanging vertically as shown. The length of the cord is such that the masses
can be held at rest both at height H/2. The dimensions of the masses and the pulley are
negligible compared to H. At time t = 0 the two masses are released.
(a) For t > 0 calculate the vertical acceleration of M2

... particle - that is, either a proton or a neutron.
The mass number A of an element is equal to the
total number of nucleons (protons + neutrons).
Isotopes are atoms that have the same number
of protons (Z1= Z2), but a different number of
neutrons (N). (A1 A2)
Law of Conservation of Momentum
... pTOTAL (i ) pTOTAL ( f )
Momentum can be transferred from one
part of a system to another, but the total
amount remains constant.
Momentum is conserved during any interaction among
objects – collisions, explosions, etc. – since these
interactions involve INTERNAL impulses (one part of
the system ...
Electromagnetic mass was initially a concept of classical mechanics, denoting as to how much the electromagnetic field, or the self-energy, is contributing to the mass of charged particles. It was first derived by J. J. Thomson in 1881 and was for some time also considered as a dynamical explanation of inertial mass per se. Today, the relation of mass, momentum, velocity and all forms of energy, including electromagnetic energy, is analyzed on the basis of Albert Einstein's special relativity and mass–energy equivalence. As to the cause of mass of elementary particles, the Higgs mechanism in the framework of the relativistic Standard Model is currently used. In addition, some problems concerning the electromagnetic mass and self-energy of charged particles are still studied.
