what is the formula for relativistic energy of an object? hence, what is the energy in MeV/c^2 of a 160 MeV/c
a. electron, m=0.511 MeV/c^2
b. muon, m = 106 MeV/c^2
c. pion, m = 135 MeV/c^2
this is killing me haha, i dont understand the "of a 160 MeV/c"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0MeV/c is a momentum. To answer your question, \[E = p^2c^2 + m^2c^4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No problem . Also E^2, not E...I fail with the typos...;)
