Statement of a problem № 11224


Outside the nucleus, the neutron itself is radioactive and decays into a proton, an electron, and an antineutrino. The half-life of a neutron (mass = 1.675 × 10227 kg) outside the nucleus is 10.4 min. On average, over what distance (in meters) would a beam of 5.00-eV neutrons travel before the number of neutrons decreased to 75.0% of its initial value?
