a) The energy that is comparable to a given mass can be computed using Einstein’s mass-energy relation.

On Applying we get,

E = 931.5 MeV

b) As

Which means

The dimensionally correct relation of 1 amu will be 931.5 MeV

a) Show that the energy equivalent of 1 u is 931.5 MeV.

b) A student writes the relation as 1 u = 931.5 MeV. The teacher points out that the relation is dimensionally incorrect. Write the correct relation.
