## Homework Statement

This one stumped me a little

Two protons are heading toward each other with equal speeds.

What minimum kinetic energy must each have if a ∏

^{2}meson is to be created in the process?

## Homework Equations

E=mc

^{2}

p+p→p+p+∏

^{2}

E=E

_{k}-mc

^{2}? not sure if I got this right or even useful

## The Attempt at a Solution

E=mc

^{2}

=135MeV

=135x10

^{6}x1.6x10

^{-19}

=2.16x10

^{-11}
