May 4, 2009 ... If the meter stick were traveling at 99.5% of the speed of light with its ... Everything
would seem normal to you, since they do not have a high ... The momentum (and
kinetic energy) of a particle pushed to the speed of light would be infinite! ... This
is why no object can move at or faster than the speed of light.
Dec 2, 2010 ... Since the speed of light is a finite number, why can we go so close to its ... If we'
ve gotten so close by giving it larger and larger acceleration every ... And how
much of a difference is there between 99.99% the speed of light, and the ... You
would need infinite amount of energy to get to c from something less.
Nov 13, 2010 ... The original question was: If I'm moving at the speed of light towards you and I ...
and converting them into kinetic energy would get you going really fast, ... point (
no experiment you could possibly do would conclude otherwise). ... But from the
perspective of the photon (i.e. the light particle) no time will hav...
Dec 22, 2006 ... If something has no mass, how could it affect us? The speed of light has been
measured often and very accurately, going ... that your theory would have to
explain as well or better before ... the increasing kinetic energy of the rod (i.e. its
energy of motion) is ... But let's say the spaceship was moving at 0.9 c.
The total energy is theparticle's rest mass energy PLUS its kinetic energy. ...
energy of a particle moving at speeds close to the speed oflight (relativistic
speeds) ... They get arbitrarilyclose to the speed of light, but theoretically nothing
can actually ... If you plug in numbers where v is much smaller than c (for an
At speeds just below the speed of light, the particles are ultra-relativistic and
would ... these fast moving particles, but dust grains have masses a thousand
