Chapter 46 623 P46.6 A proton has rest energy 938.3 MeV. The time interval during which a virtual proton could exist is at most t in ∆∆ Et = = 2 . The distance it could move is at most ct c E == ×⋅ × × = 2 1055 10 3 10 29383 16 10 10 34 8 13 16 . .. ~ Js ms J m ej e j af . According to Yukawa’s line of reasoning, this distance is the range of a force that could be associated with the exchange of virtual protons between high-energy particles.
