6th Round of 18th year

Select year


1. ... photoelectric effect( points)

The cathode of photovoltaic cell is illuminated by the light from the mercury lamp of wavelength 546,1 nm. To eliminate photoelectric voltage, the voltage of $U$_{1} = 1,563 V is needed. When the light has wavelength 404,7 nm, voltage $U$_{2} = 2,356 V is needed. Calculate the value of Planck constant $h$.

2. ... how to make a black hole( points)

When the star is compressed (or any other body) into a sphere of radius $r$_{g}, the black hole is created. So called Schwarzschild's radius $r$_{g} can be interpreted in classical physics as a radius of a body of mass $M$, where the exit velocity is equal to the speed of light $c$).

Knowing the mass of the star $M$ calculate Schwarzschild radius  $r$_{g} and critical density of the star $ρ$, at which it collapses into black hole. Solve for arbitrary values and then for the masses of Earth, Sun and the galaxy nucleus 100 billions heavier than Sun.

3. ... space probe from NASA(0 points)


In Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, U.S.A. in NASA laboratory the new rocket engine is under development. It uses momentum of $α$-particles created during radioactive decay of fermium $^{257}_{100}Fm_{157}$, which mass is $m_{Fm}$ and half-life $T$. The second product is californium $~^{253}_{98}Cf_{155}$. The mass of $α$-particle is $m_{α}$, the mass of californium is $m_{Cf}$, and during the decay the energy $E$ is released. Assume, that each $α$-particle leaves rocket in the same direction.

The space probe with above engine is in rest at the beginning and its mass is $M$, the mass of 'fuel' is also  $M$. Calculate the speed of the probe $v$ after half of the fermium decays. Resulting speed calculate also for the following numerical values $E~$= 1,106 · 10^{-12} J, $M~$= 4 kg  a $T~$= 100,5 days, for other values consult your table-book.

4. ... non-stoppable walker( points)

Lets go back to Olympic games in Athens and determine maximum theoretical speed of the race walker. The walker is disqualified, if every referee (observer) agrees, that at least one leg was touching the ground in every moment.

P. ... trip to Stonehenge(0 points)


Imagine a trip in a rocket over Stonehenge. The Stonehenge is made from stone blocks in the the shape of regular dodecagon (object with 12 corners – see figure 2) of radius  200. You fly above the axis $x$ at the height $z~$= 50 and are looking in horizontal direction. When you are in the point of coordinates ( $-~$200$, $0 ) and ( 0$, $0 ) you see the world exactly as in the image 6 respectively, while both of you have same eyes (at least the view angle:-). Calculate (approximately) the ratio of the speed of the rocket and the speed of light from the images.

E. ... catch a photon( points)

Measure the speed of light in vacuum. Use any method, for example use microwave oven.

S. ... Hamilton formalism( points)

Lagrangian of a particle in electromagnetic field is

$L~$=$~$½ $mv$²$~-~qφ~$+$~q**v**~·~**A**~$= ½ $m$ · ∑_{$i~$= 1}^{3} $v$_{$i$}²$~-~qφ~$+$~q$ · ∑_{$i~$= 1}^{3} $v$_{$i$} $A$_{$i$}$~,$

where $φ$ is electrical potential and $**A**$ is magnetic vector potential.

  • Calculate generalized momentum of the particle $p$_{$i$} belonging to the speed $v$_{$i$}.
  • Write Hamiltonian function (in variables ($x$_{$i$}$, p$_{$i$})!).
  • Solve Hamiltonian equation, if when $**A**~$= 0 and $φ~$=$~-~Ex$_{1}.
