The work-energy theorem is stated here on Wikipedia. On the same page it says "regardless of the choice of reference frame, the work energy theorem remains valid and the work done on the object is equal to the change in kinetic energy."(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am wondering if there is a relativistic version of the work-energy theorem.

Thanks,

Jake
