Textbook Problem

(a) Calculate γ for a proton that has a momentum of 1.00 kg m / s . (b) What is its speed? Such protons form a rare component of cosmic radiation with uncertain origins.

To determine

(a)

The value of γfor a proton.

Explanation

Given info:

  • The momentum of proton is 1kgms-1.

Formula used:

Formula to find value of gamma factor is,

  γ=1+p2m2c2      Equation-1

Here, vis the velocity of the proton, mis the mass of the proton and cis the speed of light.

Rearranging the equation to find the expression for speed le v,

Calculation:

Finding the value of gamma factor:

Substituting the given values in equation-1, we get,

  γ=1+

To determine

(b)

The speed of proton.
