A 1 kg mass traveling at 99% of the speed of light would have a kinetic energy of
5.47×10<sup>17</sup> joules. In explosive terms, it would be equal to 132 megatons of TNT ...
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.
Jan 20, 2011 ... Would it stay a black hole if you then decreased the speed?" ... So you can look
at that 1-kg mass in a reference frame that's moving along with it. ... probably
does get stronger because the rotational kinetic energy gravitates. If ... When a
particle is continuously accelerated there is an apparent event hori...
For single atomic sub- particles like protons, a LOT of energy. During normal
operation of the ... How much energy would be needed to accelerate a metric ton
of normal ... You cannot accelerate a massive object to the speed of light, it's
simply .... If objects can't move at the speed of light unless they have infinite
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
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...
Aug 17, 2015 ... But if it could, the conventional wisdom goes, it would travel back in time. ... Time
Travel and the speed of light have NOTHING WHATEVER to do ... I don't much
buy time travel. ... Even the floating mineral dust in space carry kinetic energy
with it. ... If particles never moved, we would not experience time.
Nothing made of matter can go at the speed of light. ... No matter how fast you
push something, it will never quite get up to light speed. ... slowing down too
much and hit the ground moving about Mach 3—over a kilometer a second. ...
The energy of the impact would be comparable to a small atomic bomb, and the
crater it ...
Firstly SR tells us that if you try to accelerate an object to light speed, its mass will

get a ... The rocket exhaust would leave the rocket at speeds much less than ligh...
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.
