Problem 36E

How can the momentum of a particle increase by 5% with only a 1% increase in speed?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 36E The relativistic momentum is given by the expression P = m v/ 1 v2 …..(1) 0 c2 Here, m =0rest mass, v = speed of the particle, c = speed of light 5% increase in momentum, so final momentum = P + 5%of P = 1.05P 1% increase in velocity, so final velocity = 1.01v (1.01v) Therefore, 1.05P = 1.01m...
