Question

A famous relation in physics relates ‘moving mass’ to the ‘rest mass’ m0 of a particle in terms of its speed and the speed of light, c. (This relation first arose as a consequence of special relativity due to Albert Einstein). A boy recalls the relation almost correctly but forgets where to put the constant c. He writes:

`m = m_0/(1-v^2)^(1/2)`

Guess where to put the missing c.
