# Integrated Concepts(a) What is γ for a proton having an energy of 1.00 TeV, produced by the Fermilab accelerator? (b) Find its momentum. (c) What is the proton's wavelength?

To determine

(a)

The relativistic constant for proton produced from the Fermi Lab.

Explanation

Given:

Total Energy for the system = 1TeV

Formula used:

Using:

E=Î³mc2 , whereÎ³ = relativistic factor, c is the speed of light, m is the mass of the electron and E = total energy of the proton.

Calculation:

Since:

E=Î³mc2 , plugging the values for E, m, c, we get:

E=Î³mc2Î³=E/mc2Î³=1

To determine

(b)

The momentum of the proton.

To determine

(c)

The wavelength of the proton.
