Define Momentum

Momentum is defined as the quantity of motion. Only moving bodies possess momentum. It is a vector quantity and its direction is same as that of velocity. Momentum is measured as the product of mass and velocity. Momentum of a body is a measure of the ...

A question from Relativity

Can someone tell me how to derive M = M_0/√(1 – v^2/c^2) Emmanuel Gonzalez posted this. The formula for relativistic mass (i.e. the mass of a body when it is moving with speeds comparable to the velovity of light in vacuum is given by)
