Solving Problems 39 and 40 Physics 002C May 12, 2010 Problem 39. What is the speed of an electron ( mc 2 = 0.511 MeV) with kinetic energy 1 MeV? Note the total energy mc 2 is the sum of the rest energy mc 2 plus the kinetic energy. a) 1.511 c; b) 0.647 c; c) 0.804 c; d) 0.338 c; e) 0.707 c. What do you know?

Unformatted text preview: mc 2 includes the internal energy (thermal energy) of the water. a) 3.7 10-3 kg; b) 3.7 10-6 kg; c) 3.7 10-9 kg; d) 3.7 10-12 ; e) 3.7 10-15 kg. What do you know? The rest energy mc 2 changes by 333.6 kJ. Therefore the mass changes by 333.6 kJ/c 2 = = 3.7 10 2 2 16 10 9 / 6 . 333 s m kJ-12 kg....
