for the following question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

dynamite liberates about 5.4*10^6 J/kg when it explodes. What fraction of its total energy content is this?

my problem:

the total energy formula=(gamma)mc^2

but the gamma factor has v, but the question doesn't have v...

any suggestions?
