The lorentz boost of the CM frame w/ respect to the lab frame

Hi i have a problem with some work.

a muon type neutrino interacts with a stationary electron, producing a muon and electron type neutrino. I have calculated the CM energy but now need to calculate gamma, the lorentz boost.

γ=(Eν/2me)^1/2

How do i show this? the info i have is that β=P/E and Ev and me are the obvious relevant energy / mass. Any help towards the solution for gamma would be appreciated.

Your problem description is really vague, which is why you probably haven't gotten any response. Can you provide a complete description of the problem, including defining what the variables you are using are, rather than have us try to guess or assume all the relevant details?
