(a) An electron (charge -e and mass m) is in a circular orbit of radius r around a fixed proton (charge +e). Prove that the electron's KE is equal to -1/2 times its PE; that is, T= -U/2 and hence E= U/2.
(b) Inelastic collision : Electron number 1 is in a circular orbit of radius r around a fixed proton.Electron 2 approaches from afar with kinetic energy
When the second atom hits the atom, the first electron is knocked free, and the second is captured in a circular orbit of radius
. Write down the expression for the total energy of the three-particle system in general.
(c) Identify the value of all five terms and the total energy E long before the collision occurs and long after it is over. What is the KE of the outgoing electron 1 once it is far away?
