    Can someone explain how electron diffraction calculates the nuclear radius?
    Measure electron beam intensity at various angles from the normal. Plot on a graph, find the angle of theta for where intensity is a minimum. Use equation r=0.61lambda/sin(theta) to work out r. Lambda is wavelength of the electrons

    Thank you! Are there any disadvantages to this method?

    The electron needs to have a really short wavelength in order to diffract between the very small gaps between atoms so needs to be accelerated to a very high velocity, so needs a very large accelerating potential

    is there anything else about derivations that we need to know other than that?

    Yes. I've memorized it, but my teacher has said that the assumptions are more likely to come up (don't believe a word she says).

    Yes it says assumptions leading to and derivation of pV=1/3Nmc^2

    Wow, lucky i came on here! I just skipped it because I thought that seems too complicated to come up. Will try to learn it in a few hours... :shoot:

    Same here lol.
    What with the hard-core alpha particle algebra in PHYA4 I wouldn't be surprised if it came up tbh

    Has it ever came up? I've done the new spec papers and it's not on any of them

    I've only seen questions on the assumptions, so it really wouldn't surprise me if it came up. However, I'm expecting a 6 marker on something with nuclear power stations OR specific heat capacity.

    its never come up, only assumptions you have to make. Does that make it more likely to come up this year though...?

    as cobalt said, there was a hard algebraic question on phya4 (the daughter nuclear stuff) so it could...

    No, but in a test we did at our school there was a question on it, but it was probably from old spec papers

    Why on Earth were the neutrons included in fission calculation in June 2011, but not in June 2014? When would I know when to include it or not?

    Experiment to detemine the specific heat capacity of a substance?

    Just a random guess.
    Could you explain how you would do this?
