72. (a) For a proton (using Table 38-3), our results are: E = γm p c 2 = 938 MeV p 1 (0 . 990) 2 =6 . 65GeV K = E m p c 2 =6 . 65GeV 938 MeV = 5 . 71 GeV p = γm p v = γ ( m p c 2 ) β/c = (938 MeV)(0 . 990) /c p 1 (0 . 990) 2 =6 . 59 GeV /c (b) For an electron: E = γm e c 2 = 0 . 511 MeV p 1 (0 . 990) 2 =3
