yes, i know this is physics.
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.1good one man. but technically i said it was killing me. didnt say it killed me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1isn't E=mc^2 relativistic energy?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah, but i cant figure out how to use that equation to get the answers, relativistic energy also equals, E= p^2c^2 +m^2c^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i figured it out, the 160 MeV/c is the momentum so the second equation works, thanks anyways man!
