m=mo/(square root ((1- v^ 2)/ c^2))

where mo is the mass of the particle at rest and ci s the speed of light. What happens as v goes to c?

what happens as v goes to c-

**jai**, Friday, August 13, 2010 at 4:40amas v goes to c, v^2 becomes c^2 and c^2/c^2 = 1,, therefore m becomes mo/sqrt(1-1) or mo/0 which is undefined,,

according to this, no such thing can exist with speed equal to the speed of light,,

so there,, =)
