The microscopic superhero "Nano Power"
attaches a carbon atom to one end of his SuperString,
which is 10 nm long.
He grabs the other end of the SuperString
and whirls it around his head with frequency f.
At just the right moment,
he releases the SuperString so that the carbon
atom flies off into a nearby helium atom.
- In order to knock one electron out of the
helium atom, with what frequency must Nano swing
the carbon atom?
- How hard must Nano pull on the string to keep
the carbon atom moving in this way?
- Once he has singly ionized the helium,
Nano prepares to launch another carbon
atom and knock the OTHER electron out of the helium atom.
With what frequency must he now swing
