Textbook Problem

When an electron and positron collide at the SLAC facility, they each have 50.0 GeV kinetic energies. What is the total collision energy available, taking into account the annihilation energy? Note that the annihilation energy is insignificant, because the electrons are highly relativistic.

To determine

The collision energy available when an electron and a positron collided at SLAC facility with each having

a kinetic energy of 50 GeV.


Given info:

The colliding electron and positron each have kinetic energy of 50 GeV.


For previous experiments done like LHC the collision energy obtained is double the incident beam energy.

For LHC at CERN the beam energy is 3.5 TeV and the obtained collision energy is 7 TeV.

For the given problem the colliding electron and positron is having 50 GeV kinetic energy each
