## Homework Statement

A proton is traveling with a speed of v = 2.993x10

^{8}m/s. Calculate the value of the inertial mass for this proton. Assume that the speed of light is c = 3.000 x 10

^{8}m/s and that the mass of the proton is 1.673 x 10

^{-27}kg.

Note: Do your calculations to 4 significant figures. Then round off to give an answer good to 3 significant figures. Be sure to include the correct abbreviation for the SI unit.

## Homework Equations

M

_{inertial}=gM

where g = 9.80m/s

and M is the Mass of the proton

## The Attempt at a Solution

M

_{inertial}=(9.80)(1.673x10

^{-27}

M

_{inertial}= 1.64 x 10

^{-26}N

Am I correct?
