## Homework Statement

A proton has a mass of 938 MeV/

*c*2. Calculate the

*of a 1760 MeV proton.*

**speed, momentum, and total energy**## Homework Equations

E= mc^2 (Rest Energy)

E= Ɣmc^2 (Total Energy)

p= Ɣmv (momentum)

KE= mc^2(Ɣ-1) (Kinetic Energy)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm not sure how the last number given (1760 MeV) is relevant, as in, I don't know what to do with it in order to start solving the problem. I know it isn't rest energy/mass because that is given as 938 MeV/c^2. It also is not the total energy because that is asked for in the question and the answer is not 1760 MeV.
