I am now currently using an introductory modern physics textbook but they did not give me the derivation for relativistic KE for a moving object which is [tex] \gamma mc^2 [/tex]. Is the derivation too difficult to be put in the introductory text?? Anyway, what is its derivation? Thanks alot.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
