Q3: A GRB emits 2 relativistic masses each with rest mass of 10-8 Msun, and with gamma factors of 150 and 200. The masses are emitted at t=0s and 0.02s, respectively. (a) At what time and distance from the engine do the two masses collide? (b) Assuming an inelastic collision, what is the gamma factor of the combined mass, and how much energy is converted into heat (which then can be radiated)? (10 marks)
