# How Much is this Energy in Mev? (Speed of Light = 3 × 108 M/S) - CBSE Class 10 - Science

ConceptAlternative or Non-conventional Sources of Energy - Nuclear Energy

#### Question

How much is this energy in MeV? (Speed of light = 3 × 108 m/s)

#### Solution

The energy released in joules when 5 g (5/1000 kg ) of a material is completely converted into energy during a nuclear reaction is given by Einstein's equation as
 E=mc^2
=(5/1000)xx(3xx10^8)^2

=4.5xx10^14j
(e) The energy in MeV is given by:
1/(1.6xx10^-13)xx4.5xx10^-13j

(since 1meV=1.6xx10^-13j )

=28xx10^27meV
