NAME

come, comv, comp - Return the energy, velocity and momentum of the center of mass of a nuclear reaction

SYNOPSIS

#include <kinem.h>

double come(int ap, int at, double elab);

double comv(int ap, int at, double elab);

double comp(int ap, int at, double elab);

double come_r(int ap, int at, double elab);

double comv_r(int ap, int at, double elab);

double comp_r(int ap, int at, double elab);

Link with -lnuclib.

DESCRIPTION

The come() function returns the kinetic energy of the center of mass of a nuclear reaction calculated in non-relativistic kinematics. Likewise, the comv() and comp() functions return the velocity and linear momentum of the center of mass. Functions come_r(), comv_r() and comp_r() calculate the same quantities in relativistic kinematics.

ap at

Atomic numbers of projectile and target

elab

Kinetic energy of projectile in laboratory system in MeV

RETURN VALUE

The function come()/come_r() returns the value described in units of MeV, comv()/comv_r() returns the value described in units of c (the velocity of light in vacuum), and comp()/comp_r() in units of MeV/c.
