- Homework Statement
- Collision of a proton and antiproton forming bunch of pions, what's the maximum amount?

- Relevant Equations
- $$E=\gamma mc^2$$

Question:

With maximum do they mean that the speed of the pions is the same as the proton and an antiproton? Otherwise there will be two unknowns, and if I use both relativistic-energy and momentum conservation equations I get difficult equations.
