    Relativistic Energy and Momentum

    Learning Goal: To learn to calculate energy and momentum for relativistic particles and, from the relativistic equations, to find relations between a particle's energy and its momentum through its mass.

    The relativistic momentum and energy E of a particle with mass moving with velocity is given by

    Part A

    Find the momentum in the laboratory frame of reference, of a proton moving with a speed of 0.752.

    Part B

    Find the total energy E of this proton in the laboratory frame.

    Express your answer in millions of electron volts to three significant figures.
