I'm curious as to the reasons why K_{E} = ½ m ⋅ v^{2} only works at speeds much less than c?
Also, how does the equation change?
Thank you!

Is it because you have to compensate for the increasing mass of the object which is proportional to the Lorentz factor, and then the integrals give you the the accurate change in mass over the entire distance with acceleration/deceleration and other factors compensated for?This thread may help.
