(a) What is the effective accelerating potential for electrons at the Stanford Linear Accelerator, if γ = 1.00 × 10 5 for them? (b) What is their total energy (nearly the same as kinetic in this case) in GeV?

To determine

(a)

The effective accelerating potential.

Explanation

Given data:

The value of γis γ=1.00×105.

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)mc2V=(γ1)mc2q

Substitute the given value.

V=[(1

To determine

(b)

The total energy.
