10. (a) In SI units, K = (2200 MeV)(1 . 6 × 10 13 J / MeV) = 3 . 52 × 10 10 J. Similarly, mc 2 =2 . 85 × 10 10 J for the positive tau. Eq. 38-51 leads to the relativistic momentum: p = 1 c p K 2 +2 Kmc 2 = 1 2 . 998 × 10 8 q (3 . 52 × 10 10 ) 2 +2(3 . 52 × 10 10 )(2 . 85 × 10 10 ) which yields p =1 . 90 × 10 18 kg · m / s. (b) According to problem 46 in Chapter 38, the radius should be calculated with the relativistic mo-
