(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the total energy produced by an electron positron collision each moving at

.9c , it is a head on collision.

3. The attempt at a solution

Can i just find the relativistic Kinetic energy of one moving at .9c

and then double it and add it to their rest energies and this would be the total energy .

Or do i need to do Lorentz transformations to see what velocity the one particle perceives the other .
