Problem 15.85

We have seen that there are processes in which the mass of an object varies with time. (a) Starting from (15.85), prove that dmIdto= u K1c2, where to is the object's proper time, u is its four-velocity, and K is the four-force on the object. (b) This means that the necessary and sufficient condition that a force doesn't change an object's mass is that u K = 0. It is an experimental fact that if a charged particle is at rest in an electromagnetic field (even instantaneously) then dE/dt = 0. Use this to argue that electromagnetic forces do not cause a particle's mass to change.
