It is said that at low speeds the relativistic kinetic energy formula will give you the same answers as the classical KE formula. I tried this, and it doesn't work. I get different answers.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am just wondering what is amiss here.

How would one derive the Classical KE from the Relativistic KE?

Thanks for the help,

Matt
