# Problem: A proton is accelerated to 0.999. What is the momentum of proton? And by what factor does the proton's momentum exceed its Newtonian momentum?

###### FREE Expert Solution

The momentum of a proton:

$\overline{){\mathbf{p}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{m}\mathbf{v}}{\sqrt{\mathbf{1}\mathbf{-}{\mathbit{v}}^{\mathbf{2}}}{{\mathbf{c}}^{\mathbf{2}}}}}}$

Mass of a proton, m = 1.67 × 10-27 kg
