I asked a quite similar question about relativistic mass and the reason for this question is identical: I can't seem to dig up any derivation for the equation for relativistic momentum:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]p=\gamma mv[/tex]

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd much appreciate it.
