    how to differentiate between the two masses in equation for relativistic mass?
    m= mo/sqroot 1-v^2/c^2 whats the difference between m and mo?

    and what about for energy: eo and e?

    The mass of the object at rest is [tex]m_0[/tex] ("m not", the zero usually signifies initial state). The other [tex]m[/tex] is the mass at the velocity you are traveling.
