Atomic physics is the field of physics that studies atoms as an isolated system of electrons and an atomic nucleus. It is primarily concerned with the arrangement of electrons around the nucleus and the processes by which these arrangements change. The theory of quantum mechanics, a set of mathematical rules that describe the behaviour of matter and its interactions, provides a good model for the description of atomic structure and properties.

In physics, nuclear physics is the field of physics that studies the constituents and interactions of atomic nuclei. The most commonly known applications of nuclear physics are nuclear power generation and nuclear weapons technology, but the research has provided application in many fields, including those in nuclear medicine and magnetic resonance imaging, ion implantation in materials engineering, and radiocarbon dating in geology and archaeology.

Sony's this question. We had an extra procedure in which five Pantages. 10 photos up, sort by a tissue with a sort of mask. Um so Because that's Reyes light, it has photos in it. So each vote home the energy of a photo can be determined by Eco's HC. Over Linda is what we learned in previous tractors. So right now, H is just the constant. Thank you and Linda is so wait. Plans were given says gives us nine point on four times tent whose inductive? 15 jobs. So this is an energy for our per photo. But then we have a lot of photons. So the total energy three It is night point knife for times 10 to the negative, 15 jars per full time times 5.0 times 10 to the 10 hotels. And Sutton is 4.97 times tent with the objective torture. So this is a lot of energy that is absorbed by this are possessor 0.6 kilogram among off masks. And lastly, we ask what is equipped with Tosi or any air. So firstly, what we have here is seen Brad, it's S r. It gets very first secure is to figure out one is what is this? Our energy in Brett. So this is energy absorbers open six kilogram and Brad is in is equivalent to the unit off phone, thorough point sue and just perched. Lord. So we need to find what is energy per kilogram. So you gotta choose that when he's divided. This is going to divide some modern energy absorbers in with six kilogram by 0.6 kilogram inside. Gives us the month energy, sort of putting away and also write it in terms of rat and I'll be even X rays. Well, so they're Quincy relate to it is going to leak, which is open so into eight ran, which is what the question is asking for.
