Find the momentum of a helium nucleus having a mass of 6 .68×10 − 27 kg that is moving at 0.200c.

To determine

The momentum of the helium nucleus.

Explanation

Given info:

The mass of the helium nucleus is 6.68×1027kg.

The speed of the helium nucleus is 0.200c.

Formula used:

Formula to find the relativistic momentum is,

p=m0v1v2c2

Here, vis the velocity of the helium nucleus, m0is the rest mass of the helium nucleus and cis the speed of light.

Calculation:

Substituting the given values, we get,

p=6.68×1027kg×0
