# Antiprotons annihilate with protons

Compute the energy released in joules per event and in kilojoules per mole when antiprotons (the antimatter corresponding to protons) annihilate with protons. An antiproton has the same mass as a proton. Equation: 1 H + 1 H > energy

#### 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.
