Conservation of Relativistic mass and thus energy is easily proven by considering an inelastic collision of two bodies while invoking the conservation of momentum. As such the momentum law appears ...
Is there any way to annihilate matter without the use of anti-matter? And vice versa? I mean, for example is it possible to totally convert the mass of a proton into "pure energy" without use an ...
I got into a discussion with my physics teacher about the speed of light and I asked What if an object with mass was to lose mass as it gained speed-- would that allow for an object to eventually ...
Basically, the book is Brian Cox's Why Does $E=mc^2$?: (And Why Should We Care?). I just finished Chapter 5, where we derived the spacetime momentum vector (energy-momentum four vector, as he ...
