Homework Help: Phsyics

Posted by Jess on Thursday, May 24, 2007 at 11:35pm.

Can someone give me some pointers on calculating the rest energy of a positron (a particle that has the same mass as an electron and equal but opposite charge) ? thanks

The rest energy is equal to the mass times the speed of light squared.
