A Particle in a lab is fired through a particle accelerator. If its rest mass is 500 MeV, what is the mass when it is traveling at 0.8c?

  • HELP PLEASE!! -

    can someone please help me on this im totally lost.

  • ANYBODY? -

    again, im really lost on this question. can someone explain to me how to do this?
