5. From Eq. 37-45, the Lorentz factor would be γ= = × = E mc 2 6 15 10 75000 . . eV 20 eV Solving Eq. 37-8 for the speed, we find γ γ = ¡ =− 1 1 1 1 2 2 (/) vc which implies that the difference between v and c is 22 11 1 1 2 cvc c §· −= − − ≈ − − + ¨¸ γγ ©¹ " where we use the binomial expansion (see Appendix E) in the last step. Therefore,
