Textbook Problem

If 1.0 × 10 30 MeV of energy is released in the annihilation of a sphere of matter and antimatter, and the spheres are equal mass, what are the masses of the spheres?

To determine

The masses of the spheres

Explanation

Given:

Energy, E=1.0×1030MeV

Formula used:

Mass of sphere is calculated by

  E=mc2m=Ec2

Here, E is energy and c is speed of light.

Calculation:

The theory of relativity gives

  E=mc2

  m=Ec2=1
