Hi,

I have been pondering on this -

what is the energy required to move a point mass

For an observer in the rotating frame, it should seem as if

I have been pondering on this -

*m*from a radial position_{0}*R*to the center of a rotating frame, if the linear velocity*v*of the point mass at position*R*is relativistic (close to*c*).For an observer in the rotating frame, it should seem as if

*m*is climbing against the centrifugal gravity. In the classical limit, the answer is [itex]\frac{mv^2}{2}[/itex]*m*_{0}is the rest massThanks!
