Relativistic Mass

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Relativity

Relativistic mass refers to the mass of a body which changes with the speed of the body as this speeds approaches close to the speed of light.

formula

\(m_r =     \frac { m}  {  \sqrt { \frac {1 - v^2} {c^2} } } \)

Where:

\(m_r\) = relativistic mass

\(m\) = rest mass

\(v\) = velocity

\(c\) = speed of light
