so we have total energy of partical ->E(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

p=γ_{p}=1/(1-(v/c)^{2})^{-1/2}

1)E=γ_{p}mc^{2}=E_{0}+K=Rest energy+ kinetic energy

=mc^{2}+mv^{2}/2

the second line correct?

2) E^{2}-(pc)^{2}=E_{0}

so P= mv or p=γ_{p}mv

im sure that we are suppose to use p=γ_{p}mv but not sure some one verify pls
