    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I am trying to grasp this stuff, but it is getting late and my mind is noodeling. Can I have some help on this?
    show that d(λmu) = m(1-(u^2/c^2)^(-3/2) du

    2. Relevant equations

    λ = 1/√(1-(u^2/c^2))

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have attacked this through integration and differentiation, but am still missing something
