6 A proton with rest energy of 938 MeV has a total energy of 1000 MeV. (a) What is the value of u/c ? (b) What is the proton's momentum? Express your answer in units of MeV/ c E = γ mc 2 = 1000 MeV γ = 1000 MeV 938 MeV = 1.0661 β = 1 1/ γ 2 = 0.3466 E 2 = pc ( ) 2 + mc 2 ( ) 2 pc ( ) 2 = E 2 mc 2 ( ) 2 = 1000

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
