can anyone explain to me wha relativistic is?

Seems to me that when someone is using that term they are referring to the sum of kinetic energy + rest mass energy.Honorable_Death said:wow sorry i don't no what was wit me when i wrote that forum, but what i ment to ask was can anyone explain to me what relativistic energy is?
Energy (sometimes referred to as "total energy") is an undefined quantity. Its a number associated with a system and this number is a constant. Energy is made up of various forms of energy each of which are well defined. One form is kinetic energy, one is mass-energy, one is potential energy etc. The quantityEl Hombre Invisible said:That's just energy isn't it?
That's true so long as the body is not under stress and has zero potential of position.El Hombre Invisible said:Relativistic energy due to observable differences in total energy due to differing reference frames. The total energy of an object is given by the root of (pc)^2 + (mc)^2, so relativistic energy is dependant on momentum, which may change frame to frame.
Relativistic energy is the energy that an object possesses due to its mass and motion, taking into account the effects of special relativity.
Relativistic energy takes into account the concept of mass energy equivalence and the fact that the speed of light is the maximum speed in the universe, while classical energy does not.
The formula for calculating relativistic energy is E = mc², where E is energy, m is mass, and c is the speed of light.
Some real-life applications of relativistic energy include nuclear energy, particle accelerators, and space travel.
Relativistic energy affects the behavior of particles at high speeds by causing their mass to increase, their length to contract, and their time to dilate, as observed in the theory of special relativity.
