A 150-W lightbulb emits of its energy as electromagnetic radiation. The bulb is at the center of a perfectly light absorbing sphere of radius 10.00 m. What is the radiation pressure on the sphere’s interior?
A microscopic spherical dust particle of radius 2.000 μm and mass 10.0 µg is moves in outer space at a constant speed of 30.0 cm/s. A wave of light strikes the particle from the opposite direction to the direction of the particle’s motion and this light is absorbed. The particle decelerates uniformly to rest in a time of 1.00 s. What was the average electric field amplitude of the absorbed light?
