Relativistic Momentum

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Relativity

Relativistic Momentum formula

\(\large{ p = \frac{ m \; v }{ \sqrt{ \frac{1 \;-\; v^2}{c^2} } } }\)

Where:

\(\large{ p }\) = relativistic momentum

\(\large{ m }\) = mass at rest

\(\large{ v }\) = velocity of the body

\(\large{ c }\) = speed of light
