A neutron moving with velocity v0 collides head-on with carbon nucleus of mass number 12. Assuming that the collision is elastic (a) calculate the fraction of neutron's kinetic energy transferred to the carbon nucleus and (b) calculate the velocities of the neutron and the carbon nucleus after the collision.

Solution:
A neutron moving with velocity v0  collides head-on with carbon nucleus of mass
