If a particle is moving through free space (no forces acting upon it) should its kinetic energy equal its mass energy equivalence or am I getting confused. In other words is an object's kinetic energy absorbed within its mass?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is the following true?

[tex]E_{kinetic} = \frac{p^{2}}{2m} = mc^{2} = E_{mass}[/tex]
