The original design of the Berkeley 184 inch synchrocyclotron was able to product a pulsed beam of 350 MeV protons by using a magnetic field of 1.5T and a voltage amplitude across the 'dees' of 10,000 eV.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is the 350MeV the proton has refers to the total energy of just the kinetic energy?

Let's say

E^2=p^2m^2+m^2c^4

Is total energy , E=350MeV

Or

Kinetic energy = sqrt(p^2m^2+m^2c^4)-mc^2=350MeV
