Integrated Concepts

(a) What is γ for an electron emerging from the Stanford Linear Accelerator with a total energy of 50.0 GeV? (b) Find its momentum. (c) What is the electron's wavelength?

To determine

(a)

The relativistic factor for electron emerging from the Stanford Linear Accelerator.

Explanation

Given:

Total Energy of the electron = 50.0 GeV

Formula used:

Using:

E=γmc2 , whereγ = relativistic factor, c is the speed of light, m is the mass of the electron and E = total energy of the electron.

Calculation:

Since:

E=γmc2 , plugging the values for E, m, c, we get:

E=γmc2γ=<

To determine

(b)

The momentum for the electron.

To determine

(c)

The wavelength of the electron.
