Homework Help: Relativistic time vs. energy

  1. Nov 10, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I have done some calculations in which a particle is emitted. The two parameters of interest are the energy that goes into its momentum and the time that passes on the particle's clock for it to go a fixed distance. If I have done this correctly then the product of these two numbers is a constant, even at relativistic speeds. This was a surprise to me. Is this correct?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
