2. Determine the energy required to accelerate
an electron from 0.587 c to 0.65 c . Answer in
units of MeV.
Following is the text part of the solution. Please see the attached file for complete solution. Equations, diagrams, graphs and special characters will not appear correctly here. Thank you for using Brainmass.
I have found the relativistic momentum of an electron upon acceleration through a large potential difference. I also have found the change in its total relativistic energy. This is a classic problem encountered often in special theory of relativity.
