CERN — the European Organization for Nuclear Research

A quick and dirty guide to high speeds

Purpose

To improve understanding of the relationship between mass, energy, momentum and speed for relativistic and ultra-relativistic particles

Information

A short presentation showing the relation between mass, energy, momentum and speed for relativistic and ultra-relativistic particles.
It uses as an example the CERN accelerator complex (for massive particles at different speeds) and the photon
