Homework Help: physics

Posted by edward on Sunday, August 11, 2013 at 1:34pm.

according to einstein's mass energy relation
M= m'/root[1-(v^2/c^2)]
Where M is mass of particle when it moves with velocity 'v'
And m' is its initial mass.
When particle moves with velocity of light i.e. When 'v=c' then
M= m'/0 =infinity i.e. Infinite mass
But a photon of light can have velocity of light.
So does this possess infinite mass?!!
