Textbook Problem

A proton track passes through a magnetic field with radius of 50 cm. The magnetic field strength is 1.5 T. What is the total energy of the proton?

To determine

The total energy of the proton.

Explanation

Given:

Radius, r =50cm

Magnetic field strength, B = 1.5T

Formula used:

The total energy of the photon is calculated by

  total energy= (pc)2+(mc)2

Calculation:

Momentum of the particle is calculated as p=0.3Br

  p=0.3Brp=0.3×1.5×0.5p=0.225GeV/c

Momentum of the energy =pc2

  =0.225GeVc(c2)=0
