Well, l for particle is here in the p I H B well atomic masses for and its atomic number is two. This is alpha particle fr particle. Well, let's calculate its radius. Uh, we know date radius are, uh are is a gold to are not, uh, multiply by. Mmm. Did the power one by three. And here, uh, are not is equal to 1.2 for me and no, therefore odd is equal to 1.2 multiplied by, um is the atomic mass, which is four to the power one by tree on this gives us, uh, one point mine. Zero for me on duh one for me is 10 to the power, minus 15 meters saying so. One for me equals 10 to the power minus 15 meters. Therefore, uh, readies are is equal to 1.9. Multiply by 10 to the power minus 15. Maters
