Units Use W=qV to define electron volt (eV) a useful energy unit 1 eV = 1.6x10 -19 C x 1V = 1.6x10 -19 J Binding energy of hydrogen atom is 13.6 eV Uranium atom releases about 200 MeV when it splits in two (fission) (not a lot of Joules/fission, but there are a lot of atoms around…) Rest mass of proton (m p ) is 0.938 GeV/c 2 which is a fine unit for mass Units of momentum, p, MeV/c 8/31/2009 3313 Andrew Brandt 2
