Rest Energy

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Rest energy, abbreviated as \(m_0\), of a particle is the mass of a partical that is measured at rest with respect to the observer.

 

Formulas that use Rest Energy

\(\large{ E_0 = m_0 c^2 }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ E_0 }\) = rest energy

\(\large{ m_0 }\) = rest mass

\(\large{ c }\)  = speed of light
