42.4 Kinetic Energy Comparison

This demonstration shows how a particle’s relativistic kinetic energy increases as its rest mass and velocity increase, soaring ever-higher as it approaches the speed of light. Use the slider to choose the particle’s rest mass and velocity. Compare the Newtonian and relativistic predictions of its kinetic energy.
