#### 7 TeV not going to budge a navy carrier

the register uses this source here: http://lhc-machine-outreach.web.cern.ch/lhc-machine-outreach/beam.htm

but it is not correct in my calculation...

so a ship of same mass traveling at 12 knots ...or velocity = 6.0166435 m/s (meters/second)

we find the energy of the navy ship at 12 knots:

E = (1/2) m * v^2 M is mass of ship, and v is velocity or speed...

E = .5 * (2x10^7 kg ) * (6.0166 m/s )^2

= 3.62x10^8 Joules or 362,000,000 Joules

since 1eV = 1.6x10-19 J

we convert Joules to eV...

3.62x10^8 J / (1.6x10-19 eV/J) = 2.2596754 x 10^+27 eV

then convert eV to TeV for comparison...

= 2.2596754 x10^15 TeV

= 2,259,675,400,000,000 TeV or read as 2.259 thousand trillion TeV !!!!!

!!!!! wow !!! a lot more energy than the Large Hadron Collider could ever produce!!!

7 TeV would hardly be enough energy to even budge a ship !
