Construct Your Own Problem Consider an ultrahigh-energy cosmic ray entering the Earth'satmosphere (some have energies approaching a joule). Construct a problem in which you calculate the energy of the particle based on the number of particles in an observed cosmic ray shower. Among the things to consider are the average mass of the shower particles, the average numberper square meter, and the extent (number of square meters covered) of the shower. Express the energy in eV and joules.

construct the problem in which you calculate the image of the particle that is a cosmic ray based on the number of parts would be observed in the shower. And we want to consider the average mass off the particle, the average number of press square meter and express the energy at the boat in juice. So let's walk, for example, off what this could be. So let's assume that we have empire because in the shower and this part was our files. So charge piles and let's just fix a number of toe becomes easier. So let's fix like 1000 particles in the shower. Now we have the energy for this constant committee will be just 1000 times times the bio mess. This is 1000 times I'm so hunter, you nine went feud seven a. Maybe. And then this is 0.139 TV. So this is the energy off the particle. So this is the mass off. The part was S o the mask off the crowds grew cross. McRae Is there a 0.19 TV oversee square and we were asked to convert this toe juice so we have the conversion electable to Jules is this, and then there's value becomes becomes true. 0.236 understands the minds aid juice. And finally, we want to know what is the average of particles in the area off Francis one kilometer. So let's speak Ari off one kilometer and we have 1000 particles in one kilometers. We have 1000 particles and one kilometer days 10 to the six and then made a square. And then we have here we have here zero but 001 by Young's. But I did buy me this square. So this is the average when amount of times that we have in a kilometer square that becomes a mirror square.
