# Special relativity (mass-energy) Calculator

## Calculates the mass-energy of a body moving with some relative velocity with respect to the observer. | ||

- Purpose of use
- understanding why exceeding the speed of light would violate half of the known physics

- Purpose of use
- What would be the surface gravity of a DVD of the film 'Gravity' starting Sandra Bullock if it was accelerated to 99.99999999999702% the speed of light? The answer is a rather poultry 0.0000043g. This low number probably reflects the poor quality of the film.

- Purpose of use
- To calculate the energy of an 866.67 fm³ mass of neutron degenerate matter at neutron star core density travelling at 99.9999% c.

- Purpose of use
- Had a silly little idea I rattling around in my head for years. Thought I could prove it wrong and put it to bed. Turns out it''s valid to more than 16 decimal points. Now I have to kind a competent physicist and ask him how WTF??? Thanks so much, if I had found this site earlier I would be finished now. ;-)

- Purpose of use
- Super useful for determining the power of a 2 cm diameter tungsten ball used in a Relative Kinetic Kill Vehicle.

- Purpose of use
- Research into the destructive potential/ Hard Science fiction

- Purpose of use
- Generator

- Purpose of use
- To determine what fraction of a mass would be needed to accelerate a mass to relativistic speeds. To accelerate to 0.2c about 2% of a mass would need to be converted to energy. I've been thinking about the Fermi Paradox and this was good information.
