Textbook Problem

What is γ for a proton having a mass energy of 938.3 MeV accelerated through an effective potential of 1.0 TV (teravolt) at Fermilab outside Chicago?

To determine

The value of γfor proton.

Explanation

Given data:

Mass energy is 938.3MeV.

Charge of electron is q=1.60×1019C.

Potential is V=1.0TV

Formula used:

The relativistic kinetic energy is,

  KE=(γ1)mc2

The kinetic energy of charge particle is,

  KE=qV

From the above expression.

  qV=(γ1)mc2γ=qVmc2+1

Substitute the given value
