Kinetic energy only takes the form 1/2mv

but kinetic energy is 1/2mv^2. where is other half?

You should also note that your first two expression are

You might want to start with formulas that are actually correct, and not confuse relativistic stuff with non-relativistic stuff. Can you explain more clearly what formulas you're using and where you got them from? If you need greek symbols and don't know LaTeX, copy and paste from Redbelly98's https://www.physicsforums.com/blog.php?b=347 [Broken].
