Formula name

RELATIVISTIC MASS

Description

relativistic mass

Syntax

mrel = m0 / SQRT(1 - (v / [c])**2)
E = mrel * [c]**2
/* "E" means the energy equivalent of the relativistic mass. */

Notes

/* The relativistic mass "mrel" is depending on the velocity "v" and is in any frame of reference bigger than that at rest especially for very high velocities near that of light. "m0" is the mass at rest and "c" the velocity of light. */
