What is the velocity of a proton accelerated by such a potential?
What is the velocity of an electron accelerated by such a potential?
What is the rest energy of an electron, given its mass is kg?
Determine the difference in the rest masses of a proton and a neutron from their rest energies. Use a value of 938.3 MeV for proton rest energy and 939.6 MeV for the neutron rest energy.
