Question

In experiments, physicists routinely accelerate protons to speeds quite close to the speed of light. The mass of a proton is $1.67 \times 10^{-27} \mathrm{~kg}$, and the proton is moving with a speed of $0.99 \mathrm{c}$. (a) Calculate the proton's momentum, according to Newton's definition. (b) Calculate the proton's relativistic momentum. (c) Determine the ratio of the relativistic momentum to the Newtonian momentum.
