So ... I've read that magnetism is needed to correct predictions from the electric field when charges are in motion (e.g. because of different charge densities in different inertial frames). Do we need to correct for mass densities in different inertial frames? I feel that general relativity would be needed, since there is gravity involved; if so, in what ways does it factor in?
