# The average particle energy needed to observe uni?cation of forces is estimated to be 1019 GeV. (a) What is the rest mass in kilograms of a particle that has a rest mass of (b) How many times the mass of a hydrogen atom is this?

To determine

(a)

The rest mass in kilograms.

Explanation

Given data:

Velocity of light is c=3Ã—108â€‰m/s.

Formula used:

The given formula for rest mass is,

â€ƒâ€ƒM=1019â€‰GeVc2 â€ƒâ€ƒ.........(1)

Calculation:

Substitute the given value in equation (1).

â€ƒâ€ƒM= 10 19Ã—( 1.6Ã— 10 âˆ’19 â€‰C)( 10</

To determine

(b)

The rest mass of particle as a multiple of mass of hydrogen atom.
