Relativistic Momentum formula

$$\large{ p = \frac{ m \; v }{ \sqrt{ \frac{1 \;-\; v^2}{c^2} } } }$$
Symbol English Metric
$$\large{ p }$$ = relativistic momentum $$\large{ \frac{lbm-ft}{sec} }$$   $$\large{ \frac{kg-m}{s} }$$
$$\large{ m }$$ = rest mass $$\large{ lbm }$$ $$\large{ kg}$$
$$\large{ c }$$ = speed of light $$\large{ \frac{ft}{sec} }$$ $$\large{ \frac{m}{s} }$$
$$\large{ v }$$ = velocity of the body $$\large{ \frac{ft}{sec} }$$ $$\large{ \frac{m}{s} }$$
