Problems of the 20th International Physics Olympiad 1
Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland 2
The article contains problems given at the 20th International Physics Olympiad (1989) and their solutions. The 20th IPhO was the third IPhO organized in Warsaw, Poland.
The emblem of the XX International Physics Olympiad contains a picture that is a historical record of the first hypernuclear event observed and interpreted in Warsaw by M. Danysz and J. Pniewski3
In the event observed above the hyperon Λ, bound with nucleon, decays like a free particle through a week (slow) process only. This fact strongly suggested the existence of a new quantum number that could explain suppression of the decay, even in presence of nucleons. Indeed, this was one of the observations that, 30 months later, led to the concept of strangeness. . The collision of a high-energy particle with a heavy nucleus was registered in nuclear emulsion. Tracks of the secondary particles emitted in the event, seen in the picture (upper star), consist of tracks due to fast pions (“thin tracks”) and to much slower fragments of the target nucleus (“black tracks”). The “black track” connecting the upper star (greater) with the lower star (smaller) in the figure is due to a hypernuclear fragment, in this case due to a part of the primary nucleus containing an unstable hyperon Λ instead of a nucleon. Hyperfragments (hypernuclei) are a new kind of matter in which the nuclei contain not only protons and neutrons but also some other heavy particles.
Theoretical problems (including solutions and marking schemes) were prepared especially for the 20th IPhO by Waldemar Gorzkowski. The experimental problem (including the solution and marking scheme) was prepared especially for this Olympiad by Andrzej Kotlicki. The problems were refereed independently (and many times) by at least two persons

after any change was made in the text to avoid unexpected difficulties at the competition. This work was done by:
Andrzej Szadkowski, Andrzej Szymacha, Włodzimierz Ungier

Several English versions of the texts of the problems were given to the English-speaking students. As far as I know it happened for the first time (at present it is typical). The original English version was accepted (as a version for the students) by the leaders of the Australian delegation only. The other English-speaking delegations translated the English originals into English used in their countries. The net result was that there were at least four English versions. Of course, physics contained in them was exactly the same, while wording and spelling were somewhat different (the difference, however, were not too great).
This article is based on the materials quoted at the end of the article and on personal notes of the author.
Consider two liquids A and B insoluble in each other. The pressures pi (i = A or B) of their saturated vapors obey, to a good approximation, the formula:
iioiTppβα+=)/ln(; i = A or B,
where po denotes the normal atmospheric pressure, T – the absolute temperature of the vapor, and iαand iβ(i = A or B) – certain constants depending on the liquid. (The symbol ln denotes the natural logarithm, i.e. logarithm with base e = 2.7182818…)
The values of the ratio pi/p0 for the liquids A and B at the temperature 40°C and 90°C are given in Tab. 1.1.
i = A
i = B
The errors of these values are negligible.
A. Determine the boiling temperatures of the liquids A and B under the pressure p0.
B. The liquids A and B were poured into a vessel in which the layers shown in Fig. 1.1 were formed. The surface of the liquid B has been covered with a thin layer of a non-volatile liquid C, which is insoluble in the liquids A and B and vice versa, thereby preventing any free evaporation from the upper surface of the liquid B, The ratio of molecular masses of the liquids A and B (in the gaseous phase) is:
Fig. 1.1 Fig. 1.2
The masses of the liquids A and B were initially the same, each equal to m = 100g. The heights of the layers of the liquids in the vessel and the densities of the liquids are small enough to make the assumption that the pressure in any point in the vessel is practically equal to the normal atmospheric pressure p0.
The system of liquids in the vessel is slowly, but continuously and uniformly, heated. It was established that the temperature t of the liquids changed with time τ as shown schematically in the Fig. 1.2.
Determine the temperatures t1 and t2 corresponding to the horizontal parts of the diagram and the masses of the liquids A and B at the time τ1. The temperatures should be rounded to the nearest degree (in °C) and the masses of the liquids should be determined to one-tenth of gram.
REMARK: Assume that the vapors of the liquids, to a good approximation,
(1) obey the Dalton law stating that the pressure of a mixture of gases is equal to the sum of the partial pressures of the gases forming the mixture and
(2) can be treated as perfect gases up to the pressures corresponding to the saturated vapors.
The liquid boils when the pressure of its saturated vapor is equal to the external pressure. Thus, in order to find the boiling temperature of the liquid i (i - A or B), one should determine such a temperature Tbi (or tbi) for which pi/p0 = 1.
Then 0)/ln(0=ppi, and we have: iibiTβα−=.
The coefficients iαand iβare not given explicitly. However, they can be calculated from the formula given in the text of the problem. For this purpose one should make use of the numerical data given in the Tab. 1.1.
For the liquid A, we have: .K)15.27390(476.1ln,K)15.27340(284.0lnAAAAβαβα++=++=
After subtraction of these equations, we get: 1-K15.27390115.273401476.1ln284.0ln
Thus, the boiling temperature of the liquid A is equal to bAT= 3748.49K/10.711 ≈ 349.95 K.
In the Celsius scale the boiling temperature of the liquid A is
=bAt(349.95 – 273.15)°C = 76.80°C ≈ 77°C.
For the liquid B, in the same way, we obtain: ≈Bα -5121.64 K, ≈Bβ13.735, ≈bBT372-89 K, ≈bBt99.74°C ≈100°C.
As the liquids are in thermal contact with each other, their temperatures increase in time in the same way.
At the beginning of the heating, what corresponds to the left sloped part of the diagram, no evaporation can occur. The free evaporation from the upper surface of the liquid B cannot occur - it is impossible due to the layer of the non-volatile liquid C. The evaporation from the inside of the system is considered below.
Let us consider a bubble formed in the liquid A or in the liquid B or on the surface that separates these liquids. Such a bubble can be formed due to fluctuations or for many other reasons, which will not be analyzed here.
The bubble can get out of the system only when the pressure inside it equals to the external pressure 0p (or when it is a little bit higher than 0p). Otherwise, the bubble will collapse.
The pressure inside the bubble formed in the volume of the liquid A or in the volume of the liquid B equals to the pressure of the saturated vapor of the liquid A or B, respectively. However, the pressure inside the bubble formed on the surface separating the liquids A and B is equal to the sum of the pressures of the saturated vapors of both these liquids, as then the bubble is in a contact with the liquids A and B at the same time. In the case considered the pressure inside the bubble is greater than the pressures of the saturated vapors of each of the liquids A and B (at the same temperature).
Therefore, when the system is heated, the pressure 0p is reached first in the bubbles that were formed on the surface separating the liquids. Thus, the temperature 1tcorresponds to a kind of common boiling of both liquids that occurs in the region of their direct contact. The temperature 1t is for sure lower than the boiling temperatures of the liquids A and B as then the pressures of the saturated vapors of the liquids A and B are less then 0p (their sum equals to 0p and each of them is greater than zero).
In order to determine the value of 1t with required accuracy, we can calculate the values of the sum of the saturated vapors of the liquids A and B for several values of the temperature t and look when one gets the value 0p.
From the formula given in the text of the problem, we have: AATAeppβα+=0, (1) BBTBeppβα+=0. (2) BApp+ equals to 0p if 100=+ppppBA.
Thus, we have to calculate the values of the following function: BBAAtttteexyβαβα+++++=00)(,
(where 15.2730=t°C) and to determine the temperature 1tt=, at which )(ty equals to 1. When calculating the values of the function )(ty we can divide the intervals of the temperatures t by 2 (approximately) and look whether the results are greater or less than 1.
1 (as 1t is less than bAt)
0.983 < 1
Therefore, ≈1t 67° C (with required accuracy).
Now we calculate the pressures of the saturated vapors of the liquids A and B at the temperature ≈1t 67°C, i.e. the pressures of the saturated vapors of the liquids A and B in each bubble formed on the surface separating the liquids. From the equations (1) and (2), we get: ≈Ap 0.7340p, ≈Bp 0.2670p, )001.1(00ppppBA≈=+.
These pressures depend only on the temperature and, therefore, they remain constant during the motion of the bubbles through the liquid B. The volume of the bubbles during this motion also cannot be changed without violation of the relation 0pppBA=+. It follows from the above remarks that the mass ratio of the saturated vapors of the liquids A and B in each bubble is the same. This conclusion remains valid as long as both liquids are in the system. After total evaporation of one of the liquids the temperature of the system will increase again (second sloped part of the diagram). Then, however, the mass of the system remains constant until the temperature reaches the value 2t at which the boiling of the liquid (remained in the vessel) starts. Therefore, the temperature 2t (the higher horizontal part of the diagram) corresponds to the boiling of the liquid remained in the vessel.
The mass ratio BAmm/ of the saturated vapors of the liquids A and B in each bubble leaving the system at the temperature 1t is equal to the ratio of the densities of these vapors BAρρ/. According to the assumption 2, stating that the vapors can be treated as ideal gases, the last ratio equals to the ratio of the products of the pressures of the saturated vapors by the molecular masses: μμμρρBABBAABABAppppmm===.
We see that the liquid A evaporates 22 times faster than the liquid B. The evaporation of 100 g of the liquid A during the “surface boiling” at the temperature 1t is associated with the
evaporation of 100 g / 22
≈4.5 g of the liquid B. Thus, at the time 1τ the vessel contains 95.5 g of the liquid B (and no liquid A). The temperature 2t is equal to the boiling temperature of the liquid B: =2t100°C.
1. physical condition for boiling 1 point
2. boiling temperature of the liquid A (numerical value) 1 point
3. boiling temperature of the liquid B (numerical value) 1 point
4. analysis of the phenomena at the temperature 1t 3 points
5. numerical value of 1t 1 point
6. numerical value of the mass ratio of the saturated vapors in the bubble 1 point
7. masses of the liquids at the time 1τ 1 point
8. determination of the temperature 2t 1 point
REMARK: As the sum of the logarithms is not equal to the logarithm of the sum, the formula given in the text of the problem should not be applied to the mixture of the saturated vapors in the bubbles formed on the surface separating the liquids. However, the numerical data have been chosen in such a way that even such incorrect solution of the problem gives the correct value of the temperature 1t (within required accuracy). The purpose of that was to allow the pupils to solve the part B of the problem even if they determined the temperature 1t in a wrong way. Of course, one cannot receive any points for an incorrect determination of the temperature 1t even if its numerical value is correct.
Typical mistakes in the pupils' solutions
Nobody has received the maximum possible number of points for this problem, although several solutions came close. Only two participants tried to analyze proportion of pressures of the vapors during the upward movement of the bubble trough the liquid B. Part of the students confused Celsius degrees with Kelvins. Many participants did not take into account the boiling on the surface separating the liquids A and B, although this effect was the essence of the problem. Part of the students, who did notice this effect, assumed a priori that the liquid with lower boiling temperature "must" be the first to evaporate. In general, this need not be true: if γwere, for example, 1/8 instead 8, then liquid A rather than B would remain in the vessel. As regards the boiling temperatures, practically nobody had any essential difficulties.
Three non-collinear points P1, P2 and P3, with known masses m1, m2 and m3, interact with one another through their mutual gravitational forces only; they are isolated in free space and do not interact with any other bodies. Let σ denote the axis going through the center-of-mass of the three masses, and perpendicular to the triangle P1P2P3. What conditions should the angular velocities ω of the system (around the axis σ) and the distances:
P1P2 = a12, P2P3 = a23, P1P3 = a13,
fulfill to allow the shape and size of the triangle P1P2P3 unchanged during the motion of the system, i.e. under what conditions does the system rotate around the axis σ as a rigid body?
As the system is isolated, its total energy, i.e. the sum of the kinetic and potential energies, is conserved. The total potential energy of the points P1, P2 and P3 with the masses 1m, 2m and 3m in the inertial system (i.e. when there are no inertial forces) is equal to the sum of the gravitational potential energies of all the pairs of points (P1,P2), (P2,P3) and (P1,P3). It depends only on the distances 12a, 23a and 23a which are constant in time. Thus, the total potential energy of the system is constant. As a consequence the kinetic energy of the system is constant too. The moment of inertia of the system with respect to the axis σ depends only on the distances from the points P1, P2 and P3 to the axis σ which, for fixed 12a, 23a and 23a do not depend on time. This means that the moment of inertia I is constant. Therefore, the angular velocity of the system must also be constant: =ωconst. (1)
This is the first condition we had to find. The other conditions will be determined by using three methods described below. However, prior to performing calculations, it is desirable to specify a convenient coordinates system in which the calculations are expected to be simple.
Let the positions of the points P1, P2 and P3 with the masses 1m, 2m and 3m be given by the vectors 1r, 2r and 3r. For simplicity we assume that the origin of the coordinate system is localized at the center of mass of the points P1, P2 and P3 with the masses 1m, 2m and 3m and that all the vectors 1r, 2r and 3r are in the same coordinate plane, e.g. in the plane (x,y). Then the axis σ is the axis z.
In this coordinate system, according to the definition of the center of mass, we have: 0321=++221rrrmmm (2)
Now we will find the second condition by using several methods.
Consider the point P1 with the mass 1m. The points P2 and P3 act on it with the forces: ),(123122121rrF−=ammG (3) ).(133133131rrF−=ammG (4)
where G denotes the gravitational constant.
In the inertial frame the sum of these forces is the centripetal force 1211rFωmr−=,
which causes the movement of the point P1 along a circle with the angular velocity ω. (The moment of this force with respect to the axis σ is equal to zero.) Thus, we have: .13121rFFF=+ (5)
In the non-inertial frame, rotating around the axis σ with the angular velocity ω, the sum of the forces (3), (4) and the centrifugal force
should be equal to zero: .0'13121=++rFFF (6)
(The moment of this sum with respect to any axis equals to zero.)
The conditions (5) and (6) are equivalent. They give the same vector equality: ,0)()(1213313311231221=+−+−rrrrr1ωmammGammG (7’) 031333122211333131223121=
From the formula (2), we get: 331122rrrmmm−−= (8)
Using this relation, we write the formula (7) in the following form: 0)(3133312221133313133113121=
The vectors 1r and 3r are non-col1inear. Therefore, the coefficients in the last formula must be equal to zero: ,01131312313=
The first equality leads to: 31231311aa=
and hence, 1213aa=.
Let aaa==1213. Then the second equality gives: GMa=32ω (9)
where 321mmmM++= (10)
denotes the total mass of the system.
In the same way, for the points P2 and P3, one gets the relations:
a) the point P2: 1223aa=; GMa=32ω
b) the point P3: 2313aa=; GMa=32ω
Summarizing, the system can rotate as a rigid body if all the distances between the masses are equal: aaaa===132312, (11)
the angular velocity ω is constant and the relation (9) holds.
At the beginning we find the moment of inertia I of the system with respect to the axis σ. Using the relation (2), we can write:
Of course, 22iir=r i = 1, 2, 3
The quantities jirr2(i, j = 1, 2, 3) can be determined from the following obvious relation: jijijijijijiijrrarrrrrrrrrr22)(2222222−+=−+=−=−=.
We get: .2222ijjijiarr−+=rr
With help of this relation, after simple transformations, we obtain: .))(()(022332222113212332211Σ<−++++=++=jiijjiammrmrmrmmmmmmmrrr
The moment of inertia I of the system with respect to the axis σ, according to the definition of this quantity, is equal to .233222211rmrmrmI++=
The last two formulae lead to the following expression: Σ<=jiijjiammMI21
where M (the total mass of the system) is defined by the formula (10).
In the non-inertial frame, rotating around the axis σ with the angular velocity ω, the total potential energy totV is the sum of the gravitational potential energies ijjiijammGV−=; i, j = 1, 2, 3; i < j
of all the masses and the potential energies
2221iiirmVω−=; i = 1, 2, 3
of the masses im (i = 1, 2, 3) in the field of the centrifugal force: +−==−=−=−=ΣΣΣΣΣΣ<<<<=<ijijjijiijjjiijiijjijiijjiiiijiijjitotaGaMmmammMammGIammGrmammGV22222122123122121ωωωω
A mechanical system is in equilibrium if its total potential energy has an extremum. In our case the total potential energy totV is a sum of three terms. Each of them is proportional to: .2)(22aGaMaf+=ω
The extrema of this function can be found by taking its derivative with respect to a and requiring this derivative to be zero. We get: .022=−aGaMω
It leads to: GMa=32ω or ).(32132mmmGa++=ω
We see that all the terms in totV have extrema at the same values of aaij=. (In addition, the values of a and ω should obey the relation written above.) It is easy to show that it is a maximum. Thus, the quantity totV has a maximum at aaij=.
This means that our three masses can remain in fixed distances only if these distances are equal to each other: aaaa===132312
and if the relation GMa=32ω,
where M the total mass of the system, holds. We have obtained the conditions (9) and (11) again.
Let us consider again the point P1 with the mass 1m and the forces 21F and 31F given by the formulae (3) and (4). It follows from the text of the problem that the total moment (with respect to any fixed point or with respect to the mass center) of the forces acting on the point P1 must be equal to zero. Thus, we have: 0131121=×+×rFrF
where the symbol × denotes the vector product. Therefore
Using the formula (8), the last relation can be written as follows: ,0)(113313313311312=×+×−−rrrrrammma ,0133133133123=×+×−rrrramam .01113312313=×
The vectors 1r and 3r are non-col1inear (and different from 0). Therefore 013≠×rr
Similarly, one gets: ).( 2312aaa==
We have re-derived the condition (11).
Taking into account that all the distances ija have the same value a, from the equation (7) concerning the point P1, using the relation (2) we obtain: ,0)()(121333112321=+−+−rrrrr1ωmammGammG ,012111333231=+
This is the condition (9). The same condition is got in result of similar calculations for the points P2 and P3.
The method described here does not differ essentially from the first method. In fact they are slight modifications of each other. However, it is interesting to notice how application of a proper mathematical language, e.g. the vector product, simplifies the calculations.
The relation (9) can be called a “generalized Kepler’s law” as, in fact, it is very similar to the Kepler’s law but with respect to the many-body system. As far as I know this generalized Kepler’s law was presented for the first time right at the 20th IPhO.

Remarks and typical mistakes in the pupils' solutions
No type of error was observed as predominant in the pupils' solutions. Practically all the mistakes can be put down to the students' scant experience in calculations and general lack of skill. Several students misunderstood the text of the problem and attempted to prove that the three masses should be equal. Of course, this was impossible. Moreover, it was pointless, since the masses were given. Almost all the participants tried to solve the problem by analyzing equilibrium of forces and/or their moments. Only one student tried to solve the problem by looking for a minimum of the total potential energy (unfortunately, his solution was not fully correct). Several participants solved the problem using a convenient reference system: one mass in the origin and one mass on the x-axis. One of them received a special prize.
The problem concerns investigation of transforming the electron microscope with magnetic guiding of the electron beam (which is accelerated with the potential difference U = 511 kV) into a proton microscope (in which the proton beam is accelerated with the potential difference –U). For this purpose, solve the following two problems:
A. An electron after leaving a device, which accelerated it with the potential difference U, falls into a region with an inhomogeneous field B generated with a system of stationary coils L1, L2, … , Ln. The known currents in the coils are i1, i2, … , in, respectively.
What should the currents i1’, i2’, … , in’ in the coils L1, L2, … , Ln be, in order to guide the proton (initially accelerated with the potential difference –U) along the same trajectory (and in the same direction) as that of the electron?
HINT: The problem can be solved by finding a condition under which the equation describing the trajectory is the same in both cases. It may be helpful to use the relation:
pdtdp = dtd21p2 = dtd21p2.
B. How many times would the resolving power of the above microscope increase or decrease if the electron beam were replaced with the proton beam? Assume that the resolving power of the microscope (i.e. the smallest distance between two point objects whose circular images can be just separated) depends only on the wave properties of the particles.
Assume that the velocities of the electrons and protons before their acceleration are zero, and that there is no interaction between own magnetic moment of either electrons or protons and the magnetic field. Assume also that the electromagnetic radiation emitted by the moving particles can be neglected.
NOTE: Very often physicists use 1 electron-volt (1 eV), and its derivatives such as 1 keV or 1 MeV, as a unit of energy. 1 electron-volt is the energy gained by the electron that passed the potential difference equal to 1 V.
Perform the calculations assuming the following data:
Rest energy of electron: Ee = mec2 = 511 keV
Rest energy of proton: Ep = mpc2 = 938 MeV
At the beginning one should notice that the kinetic energy of the electron accelerated with the potential difference U = 511 kV equals to its rest energy 0E. Therefore, at least in the case of the electron, the laws of the classical physics cannot be applied. It is necessary to use relativistic laws.
The relativistic equation of motion of a particle with the charge e in the magnetic field B has the following form:
where vpγ0m=denotes the momentum of the particle (vector) and BvF×=eL
is the Lorentz force (its value is evB and its direction is determined with the right hand rule). 0m denotes the (rest) mass of the particle and v denotes the velocity of the particle. The quantity γ is given by the formula: 2211cv−=γ
The Lorentz force LF is perpendicular to the velocity v of the particle and to its momentum vpγ0m=. Hence, 0=⋅=⋅pFvFLL.
Multiplying the equation of motion by p and making use of the hint given in the text of the problem, we get: 0212=pdtd.
It means that the value of the particle momentum (and the value of the velocity) is constant during the motion: ==γvmp0 const; v = const.
The same result can be obtained without any formulae in the following way:
The Lorentz force LF is perpendicular to the velocity v (and to the momentum p as vpγ0m=) and, as a consequence, to the trajectory of the particle. Therefore, there is no force that could change the component of the momentum tangent to the trajectory. Thus, this component, whose value is equal to the length of p, should be constant: =pconst. (The same refers to the component of the velocity tangent to the trajectory as vpγ0m=).
Let s denotes the path passed by the particle along the trajectory. From the definition of the velocity, we have: .vdtds=
Using this formula, we can rewrite the equation of motion as follows: LdtddsddtdsdsdvFppp===, vdsdLFp=.
Dividing this equation by p and making use of the fact that p = const, we obtain: vppdsdvLFp=
and hence vpdsdLFt=
where vp//vpt== is the versor (unit vector) tangent to the trajectory. The above equation is exactly the same for both electrons and protons if and only if the vector quantity: vpLF
is the same in both cases.
Denoting corresponding quantities for protons with the same symbols as for the electrons, but with primes, one gets that the condition, under which both electrons and protons can move along the same trajectory, is equivalent to the equality: '''pvvpLLFF=.
However, the Lorentz force is proportional to the value of the velocity of the particle, and the directions of any two vectors of the following three: t (or v), FL, B determine the direction of the third of them (right hand rule). Therefore, the above condition can be written in the following form: '''pepeBB=.
This means that at any point the direction of the field B should be conserved, its orientation should be changed into the opposite one, and the value of the field should be multiplied by the same factor p'/p. The magnetic field B is a vector sum of the magnetic fields of the coils that are arbitrarily distributed in the space. Therefore, each of this fields should be scaled with the same factor -p'/p. However, the magnetic field of any coil is proportional to the current flowing in it. This means that the required scaling of the fields can only be achieved by the scaling of all the currents with the same factor -p'/p: nnippi''−=.
Now we shall determine the ratio p'/p. The kinetic energies of the particles in both cases are the same; they are equal to ==UeEk511 keV. The general relativistic relation between the total energy E of the particle with the rest energy E0 and its momentum p has the following form: 22202cpEE+=
where c denotes the velocity of light.
The total energy of considered particles is equal to the sum of their rest and kinetic energies: kEEE+=0.
Using these formulae and knowing that in our case ekEUeE==, we determine the momenta of the electrons (p) and the protons (p’). We get:
a) electrons: ,)(2222cpEEEeee+=+ .3cEpe=
b) protons ,')(2222cpEEEpep+=+ .1'22−
and nnii 0.35'−=.
It is worthwhile to notice that our protons are 'almost classical', because their kinetic energy )(ekEE= is small compared to the proton rest energy pE. Thus, one can expect that the momentum of the proton can be determined, with a good accuracy, from the classical considerations. We have: ,2'2'2'222222pppkeEcpcmcpmpEE==== .21'peEEcp=
On the other hand, the momentum of the proton determined from the relativistic formulae can be written in a simpler form since Ep/Ee » 1. We get:
In accordance with our expectations, we have obtained the same result as above.
The resolving power of the microscope (in the meaning mentioned in the text of the problem) is proportional to the wavelength, in our case to the length of the de Broglie wave: ph=λ
where h denotes the Planck constant and p is the momentum of the particle. We see that λ is inversely proportional to the momentum of the particle. Therefore, after replacing the electron beam with the proton beam the resolving power will be changed by the factor p/p' ≈1/35. It means that our proton microscope would allow observation of the objects about 35 times smaller than the electron microscope.

Remarks and typical mistakes in the pupils' solutions
Some of the participants tried to solve the problem by using laws of classical mechanics only. Of course, this approach was entirely wrong. Some students tried to find the required condition by equating "accelerations" of particles in both cases. They understood the "acceleration" of the particle as a ratio of the force acting on the particle to the "relativistic" mass of the particle. This approach is incorrect. First, in relativistic physics the relationship between force and acceleration is more complicated. It deals with not one "relativistic" mass,
but with two "relativistic" masses: transverse and longitudinal. Secondly, identity of trajectories need not require equality of accelerations.
The actual condition, i.e. the identity of eB/p in both cases, can be obtained from the following two requirements:
1° in any given point of the trajectory the curvature should be the same in both cases;
2° in the vicinity of any given point the plane containing a small arc of the trajectory should be oriented in space in both cases in the same way.
Most of the students followed the approach described just above. Unfortunately, many forgot about the second requirement (they neglected the vector character of the quantity eB/p).
The following equipment is provided:
1. Two piezoelectric discs of thickness 10 mm with evaporated electrodes (Fig. 4.1) fixed in holders on the jaws of the calipers;
2. The calibrated sine wave oscillator with a photograph of the control panel, explaining the functions of the switches and regulators;
3. A double channel oscilloscope with a photograph of the control panel, explaining the functions of the switches and regulators;
4. Two closed plastic bags containing liquids;
5. A beaker with glycerin (for wetting the discs surfaces to allow better mechanical coupling);
6. Cables and a three way connector;
7. A stand for support the bags with the liquids;
8. Support and calipers.
A piezoelectric material changes its linear dimensions under the influence of an electric field and vice-versa, the distortion of a piezoelectric material induces an electrical field. Therefore, it is possible to excite the mechanical vibrations in a piezoelectric material by applying an alternating electric field, and also to induce an alternating electric field by mechanical vibrations.
1 The Organizing Committee planned to give another experimental problem: a problem on high Tc superconductivity. Unfortunately, the samples of superconductors, prepared that time by a factory, were of very poor quality. Moreover, they were provided after a long delay. Because of that the organizers decided to use this problem, which was also prepared, but considered as a second choice.
A. Knowing that the velocity of longitudinal ultrasonic waves in the material of the disc is about 3104⋅ m/s, estimate roughly the resonant frequency of the mechanical vibrations parallel to the disc axis. Assume that the disc holders do no restrict the vibrations. (Note that other types of resonant vibrations with lower or higher frequencies may occur in the discs.)
Using your estimation, determine experimentally the frequency for which the piezoelectric discs work best as a transmitter-receiver set for ultrasound in the liquid. Wetting surfaces of the discs before putting them against the bags improves penetration of the liquid in the bag by ultrasound.
B. Determine the velocity of ultrasound for both liquids without opening the bags and estimate the error.
C. Determine the ratio of the ultrasound velocities for both liquids and its error.
Complete carefully the synopsis sheet. Your report should, apart from the synopsis sheet, contain the descriptions of:
- method of resonant frequency estimation;
- methods of measurements;
- methods of estimating errors of the measured quantities and of final results.
Remember to define all the used quantities and to explain the symbols.

1 In the real Synopsis Sheet the students had more space for filling.
A. As the holders do not affect vibrations of the disc we may expect antinodes on the flat surfaces of the discs (Fig. 4.2; geometric proportions not conserved). One of the frequencies is expected for
where v denotes the velocity of longitudinal ultrasonic wave (its value is given in the text of the problem), f - the frequency and l - the thickness of the disc. Thus:
Numerically 5102⋅=fHz = 200 kHz.
One should stress out that different modes of vibrations can be excited in the disc with height comparable to its diameter. We confine our considerations to the modes related to longitudinal waves moving along the axis of the disc as the sound waves in liquids are longitudinal. We neglect coupling between different modes and require antinodes exactly at the flat parts of the disc. We assume also that the piezoelectric effect does not affect velocity of ultrasound. For these reasons the frequency just determined should be treated as only a rough approximation. However, it indicates that one should look for the resonance in vicinity of 200 kHz.
The experimental set-up is shown in Fig. 4.3. The oscillator (generator) is connected to one of the discs that works as a transmitter and to one channel of the oscilloscope. The second disc is connected to the second channel of the oscilloscope and works as a receiver. Both discs are placed against one of the bags with liquid (Fig. 4.4). The distance d can be varied.

Axis of the disc
l = λ/2
Mode considered in the problem (schematically)
One searches for the resonance by slowly changing the frequency of the oscillator in the range 100 – 1000 kHz and watching the signal on the oscilloscope. In this way the students could find a strong resonance at frequency 220≈f kHz. Other resonance peaks could be found at about 110 kHz and 670 kHz. They should have been neglected as they are substantially weaker. (They correspond to some other modes of vibrations.) Accuracy of these measurements was 10 kHz (due to the width of the resonance and the accuracy of the scale on the generator).
B. The ultrasonic waves pass through the liquid and generate an electric signal in the receiver. Using the same set-up (Fig. 4.3 and 4.4) we can measure dependence of the phase shift between the signals at Y1 and Y2 vs. distance between the piezoelectric discs d at the constant frequency found in point A. This phase shift is 0/2ϕπϕ+=Δlvdf, where lv denotes velocity of ultrasound in the liquid. 0ϕ denotes a constant phase shift occurring when ultrasound passes trough the bag walls (possibly zero). The graph representing dependence )(ϕΔd should be a straight line. Its slope allows to determine lv and its error. In general, the
Bag with liquid
ϕΔ are difficult for many reflections in the bag, which perturb the signal. One of the best ways is to measure d only for πϕn=Δ (n - integer) as such points can be found rather easy. Many technical details concerning measurements can be found in  (pp. 37 and 38).
The liquids given to the students were water and glycerin. In the standard solution the author of the problem received the following values:
vwater = 310)10.050.1(⋅± m/s; vglycerin = 310)10.096.1(⋅± m/s.
The ratio of these values was 15.031.1±.
The ultrasonic waves are partly reflected or scattered by the walls of the bag. This effect somewhat affects measurements of the phase shift. To minimize its role one can measure the phase shift (for a given distance) or distance (at the same phase shift) several times, each time changing the shape of the bag. As regards errors in determination of velocities it is worth to mention that the most important factor affecting them was the error in determination of the frequency. This error, however, practically does not affect the ratio of velocities.

The results of this problem were very good (more than a half of competitors obtained more than 15 points). Nevertheless, many students encountered some difficulties in estimation of the frequency. Some of them assumed presence of nodes at the flat surfaces of the discs (this assumption is not adequate to the situation, but accidentally gives proper formula). In part B some students tried to find distances between nodes and antinodes for ultrasonic standing wave in the liquid. This approach gave false results as the pattern of standing waves in the bag is very complicated and changes when the shape of the bag is changed.

Tiadalah itu semua melainkan sebagai peringatan bagi seluruh alam. Allah yang mengabulkan do’a luqmanul hakim dan mewariskan sulaiman bin daud a.s. Ya allah robb yang maha penuh kasih, ya allah, ya allah, ya allah robb yang memiliki singgasana yang agung, yang dapat berbuat apa yang diinginkan, maka panjangkanlah umurku dan sehatkanlah tubuhku, perkenankanlah hajatku, limpahkanlah hartaku dan anak-anakku, dan berikanlah rasa cinta semua manusia kepadaku, jauhkanlah permusuhan dan pertentangan dari diriku dari semua anak cucu adam a.s. Allah yang hidup dan perkataan itu benar atas orang-orang kafir. Dan katakanlah telah datang yang haq dan telah sirnalah yang bathil karena sesungguhnya yang bathil itu pasti akan sirna.

google terjemahan indonesia-englishHere I am sitting in front of my computer watching one of my favourite TV Series How I Met Your Mother and found a very good intro after watching its 22nd episode which is I think can also be used if I ever have to tell the story of How I Met Kate. The girl who I’ve been dating right now.
The movie says : The great moments of your life won’t necessarily be the things you do, they’ll also be the things that happen to you. Now I’m not saying you can’t take action to affect the outcome of your life. You HAVE to take action, and you will. But never forget that on any day, you could step out the front door and your whole life can change forever. The universe has a plan (or in other words God has plan) and that plan is always in motion. Making sure that you end up exactly where you’re supposed to be, exactly when you’re supposed to be there. The right place at the right time.
