## Homework Statement

This is not really homework, I am trying to understand relativity and I suppose my question is too simple to post in other forums.

I took the following data from the Cern site when they reached 7TeV:

**2. Relevant data**

E

_{k}= 7 Tev (1.6926*10

^{27}Hz)

B = 8.33 T

R

_{Lch}= 4243 00 cm

E

_{p}(m) = 0.938 GeV = 2,2685 * 10

^{23}Hz (= 1,67 *10

^{-24}g)

β=

*0.999 999 991*c : I'm not sure how many 9 should be there. Can you show me how to find it?

Relativistic mass: can we find the mass increase only if we know v/c?

[tex]M+ = \frac{1} {\sqrt (1-β^2)}[/tex]

Has this curve got a name? is it similar to sec α?

Could someone plot the two curves together in a graph, please?

Can I find the exact value of the mass increase just dividing E

_{k}by E

_{p}:

M+ = 7000/0.938 = 7461 rest masses ?
