Question
When an electron and positron collide at the SLAC facility, they each have 50.0 GeV kinetic energies. What is the total collision energy available, taking into account the annihilation energy? Note that the annihilation energy is insignificant, because the electrons are highly relativistic.
$100.0\textrm{ GeV}$
The rest energy of the particles is insignificant in comparison with their kinetic energies.
