Check out this interactive demonstration, which shows how a particle’s relativistic mass increases as its velocity increases. Use the slider to choose the velocity of a particle whose rest mass is 5 kg. Notice how quickly its relativistic mass increases at speeds greater than 0.8 c, soaring ever-higher as its speed approaches that of light.
