Let's say that body with rest mass m(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{0}is falling toward gravitating body from infinity.

Near gravitating body it falls with speed [tex]v=\sqrt{\frac{2MG}{r}}[/tex]

Is it right that relativistic mass of body falling at speed v near gravitating body is equal to the rest mass of the same body at infinite distance from gravitating body?
