The relativistic momentum is given by p=mvγ, where Y is the Lorentz factor and m is the rest mass of the body.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is that if we are considering the momentum of the body at relativistic speeds, shouldn't we also consider the relativistic mass of the body?
