    Solution Preview

    Equation: 1 H + 1 H ---> energy

    (^ indicates to the power of)
    mass of 1 proton= mass of 1 antiproton= 1.6726 x ^-27 kilograms

    Release of energy = E = delta m c ^2
    delta m=mass that is annihilated= 2 x ...

    Solution Summary

    The expert computes the energy released in joules per event and in kilojoules per mole when antiprotons annihilate with protons.
