I found 5 different names for "mass", and I can't clearly translate them into my native language:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) Rest mass

2) Inertial mass

3) Invariant mass

4) Relativistic mass

5) Gravitational mass

In Italian we have "inertial" and "gravitational", but due to "false friends" I can't be sure of their exact translation...

F= m*a

F= GMm/r^2

Are masses from 1 to 4 the "m" in first formula, and the last one the "m" in second formula?
