# Solution: When a positron and an electron annihilate one another, the resulting mass is completely converted to energy.Calculate the energy associated with this process in kJ/mol.

###### Problem

When a positron and an electron annihilate one another, the resulting mass is completely converted to energy.

Calculate the energy associated with this process in kJ/mol.

###### Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the energy released for the reaction of a positron and an electron :

To calculate the energy released for the reaction, we’re going to use the following steps:

Step 1: Calculate the mass defect (Δm).
Step 2: Calculate the mass defect (Δm) in kg.
Step 3: Calculate the energy released (E).

Step 1: Calculate the mass defect (Δm).
