Answer to Question #42933 in Mechanics | Relativity for Benjamin K
During machine testing time, a proton in the Large Hadron Collider travels at 0.999990 c, where
c is the velocity of light.
a) Find the total energy of the proton. (ANS: 3.36144 x 10-8 J or 0.209804 TeV)
b) Find its kinetic energy. (ANS: 3.34641 x 10-8 J or 0.208866 TeV)
