Homework Help: Relativistic Momentum Problem

  1. Feb 6, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    At what speed is the magnitude of the relativistic momentum of a particle 11 times the magnitude of the nonrelativistic momentum?


    2. Relevant equations

    P=mv/(1-v^2/c^2)^1/2

    3. The attempt at a solution

    11=v/(1-v^2/c^2)^1/2?

    Essentially, the question asks you to solve for v, when [tex]\gamma = 11[/tex].
