Textbook Problem

(a) A γ -ray photon has a momentum of 8.00 × 10 21 kg m / s . What is its wavelength? (b) Calculate its energy in MeV.

To determine

(a)

The wavelength of a γ ray photon that has a momentum of 8×1021 kgms1.

Explanation

Given info:

  p=8×1021 kg.m.s-1

  h=6.63×1034 Js-1

Formula used:

For momentum in photon, the relation between photon and wavelength is

  phλ

Or

  λhp

Calculation:

Now wavelength of photon is

  λ6

To determine

(b)

The energy in MeV.
