Question: 

The 1.0-km radius Fermilab Tevatron took about 20 seconds to bring the energies of the stored protons from 150 GeV to 1.0 TeV. The acceleration was done once per turn. Estimate the energy given to the protons on each turn. (You can assume that the speed of the protons is essentially c the whole time.)
