# Determine: a. The speed of a neutron. b. The speed of a helium atom. c. The specific type of particle that has of kinetic energy when moving with a speed of .

a. The speed of a is.

b. The speed of a is.

c. The specific type of particle is electron.

See the step by step solution

## Part (a) step 1: Given information

We need to determine the speed of a neutron.

## Part (a) step 2: Simplify

Energy of motion is

## Part (b) step 1: Given information

We need to determine the speed of a helium atom.

Energy=,

Mass=

Velocity is

## part (c) Given information

We need to determine the specific type of particle that has of kinetic energy when moving with a speed of .

## Part (c) step 2: Simplify

Energy=

Velocity =

Since the mass of the particle is equal to electron, hence the unknown particle is electron.
