(b) The amount of kinetic energy lost during the collision, and

(c) The velocity (speed and direction) of the composite particle.

Roughly speaking, the observable mass in our universe is all attributed to stars and gas clouds in the galaxies. (a) Assuming that each galaxy contains the mass of 200 -billion Suns and there are 200 billion such galaxies, ...Some stars appear reddish, and others appear blue. Which of these two types of stars have the higher surface temperature? Explain. Light of the same frequency is incident on two materials with different work functions. Discuss how the stopping voltage of the photoelectrons is affected by the work function. The work function of a surface is 5.0 x 10-19 J. If light of wavelength of 300 nm is incident on the surface, what is the maximum kinetic energy of the photoelectrons ejected from the surface? When light of wavelength of 250 nm is incident on a metal surface, the maximum speed of the photoelectrons is 4.0 x 105 m/s. What is the work function of the metal in eV?Post your question
