physics

could someone PLEASEE help me? Ive procrastinated and i'm really desperate... I'm supposed to teach the class about "relativistic momentum and mass" in terms of special theory of relativeity. i looked up infomation on google, but i don't understnad because its mostly university level. could someone please explain the concepts to me?

http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/relativ/relmom.html

This is not a subject to put off. Few understand it.

Notice from the link, that "mass" increases as speed gets close to the speed of light. In theory, momentum and mass are infinite at the speed of light. Think of mass as a quality resisting changes in motion, and as one moves closer to the speed of light, the resistance becomes infinite.
I am wondering what you are going to teach the class.

  4. Math help please

    I'm so lost on this math Hw it's over factoring variables and I don't get it. Like my teach said that we are supposed to have the number and letter in front of everything. For example: -14x^2-7x+21 For factoring I got 7x(-2x-1+3)
