Textbook Problem

Find the rest energy in joules and MeV of a proton, given its mass is 1.67 × 10 27 kg.

To determine

The rest mass energy of the proton in unit of joule and MeV.

Explanation

Given info:

  • The mass of proton is 1.67×1027kg.

Formula used:

Formula to find the rest mass energy is,

  E0=m0c2

Here, m0is the rest mass of proton and cis the speed of light.

Calculation:

Substituting the given value, we get,

  E0=(1.67×1027kg)×(3×108ms-1)2=1.503×1010J

Converting unit of energy from joules to mega electron volts.

  E0=1
