Unformatted text preview: (Assume that the sphere is highly polished, so that all the light reflects directly back. You may also assume that the photon energy is much less than the rest mass energy of the sphere.) 6. The p meson (rest energy m p c 2 = 135 MeV) decays into two photons. (a) Find the energy of the two photons if the p is at rest when it decays. (b) Suppose that the p has energy of 1 GeV in the lab at the time when it decays. Find the energies of the two photons in the lab if one emerges in the direction in which the p was traveling....
