In the theory of relativity, the mass of a particle with velocity v is

m = m0 / sqrt(1-v^2 / c^2)

where m0 is mass of the particle at rest and c is the speed of light. What happens as v approaches c^-?

  • calculus - limits -

    mass is unbounded, it increases. Since this cannot happen, velocity cannot equal the speed of light.
