    The operator of a linear particle accelerator tells a tour group that it is used to give protons an energy of 600MeV.

    a) this 600MeV must refer to the protons total, kinetic, or rest energy? Why?

    b) what are the values of these three proton energies?

    c) what is the protons speed?

    d) what is the protons momentum?
