Unformatted text preview: 50. (a) We set Eq. 37-52 equal to 2mc2, as required by the problem, and solve for the speed. Thus, ⎛1 ⎞ mc 2 ⎜ − 1⎟ = 2mc 2 ⎜ 1− β 2 ⎟ ⎝ ⎠ leads to β = 2 2 / 3 ≈ 0.943. (b) We now set Eq. 37-48 equal to 2mc2 and solve for the speed. In this case, mc 2 1− β leads to β = 3 / 2 ≈ 0.866. 2 = 2mc 2 ...
