for an inverse square field the force is proportional to 1/r^2(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

obviously we integrate over distance to get energy ≡ 1/r (where energy = 0 at infinity)

but what happens when velocity becomes relativistic?

is relativistic energy proportional to 1/r?

if its any easier what I am really looking for is gamma as a function of r for an inverse square field and gamma = 1 at infinity
