Textbook Problem

(a) Using data from Table 7.1, find the mass destroyed when the energy in a barrel of crude oil is released. (b) Given these barrels contain 200 liters and assuming the density of crude oil is 750 kg/m3, what is the ratio of mass destroyed to original mass, Δ m / m ?

To determine

(a)

The mass destroyed.

Explanation

Given data:

The energy is E=5.90×109J.

The velocity of light is c=3.00×108m/s.

Formula used:

The relativistic kinetic energy is,

  E=Δmc2

Substitute the given value.

  Δm=5.90×109J(3

To determine

(b)

The ratio of mass destroyed and original mass.
