Textbook Problem

Take the ratio of relativistic rest energy, E = γ m c 2 , to relativistic momentum, p = γ m u , and show that in the limit that mass approaches zero, you find E / p = c .

To determine

To show:

That in the limit that mass approaches zero E/p=c. Take the ratio of relativistic rest energy, Eγmc2 , to relativistic momentum, pγmu.

Explanation

Introduction:

Maxwell and others who studied EM waves predicted that they would carry momentum. photon momentum is suggested by the photoelectric effect, where photons knock electrons out of a substance.

Given info:

  Eγmc2

  pγmu

Calculation:

Now energy and momentum ratio is determine

  Epγmc2γmuEp c2u
