Question
At full energy, protons in the 2.00-km-diameter Fermilab synchrotron travel at nearly the speed of light, since their energy is about 1000 times their rest mass energy. (a) How long does it take for a proton to complete one trip around? (b) How many times per second will it pass through the target area?
1. $21.0\textrm{ }\mu\textrm{s}$
2. $47.7\textrm{ kHz}$
