classically, an electron accelerating from rest in a uniform electric field will have a kinetic energy proportional to the distance 'd' from its point of origin.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

will this continue to hold even when the electron is moving at relativistic velocity?

I understand that the formula for relativistic kinetic energy is

so basically kinetic energy is proportional to gamma - 1

so gamma(d) ≡ d + 1?
