Question: 2.15

A famous relation in physics relates ‘moving mass’ m to the ‘rest mass’ of a particle in terms of its speed v and the speed of light, c. (this relation first arose as a consequence of special relativity due to Albert Einstein) . A boy recalls the relation almost correctly but forgets where to put the constant c. he writes:

Answer: 2.15

  • Given the relation,

  • Dimension of
  • Dimension of
  • Dimension of
  • Dimension of
  • Dimension of
  • The given formula will be dimensionally correct only when the dimension of L. H. S is the same as that of R. H. S.
  • This is only possible when the factor, is dimensionless i.e.. is dimensionless. This is only possible if is divided by Hence, the correct relation is
