Step 1

1 of 2The classical momentum is given by $p=mv$. The modern relativity changed the momentum to be $p=\gamma mu$, where $\gamma= \frac{1}{\sqrt{1-\frac{v^2}{c^2}}}$ and that $u$ is the velocity of the moving object relative to an observer, instead of the velocity of the frame $v$ used in classical physics.
