Mass of a Moving Particle The mass m of a particle moving at a velocity v is related to its rest mass m0 by the equation m = m0 1 − v2 c2 where c (2.98 ✕ 108 m/s) is the speed of light. Suppose an electron of rest mass 9.11 ✕ 10−31 kg is being accelerated in a particle accelerator. When its velocity is 2.84 ✕ 108 m/s and its acceleration is 2.49 ✕ 105 m/s2, how fast is the mass of the electron changing? (Enter your answer in scientific notation rounded to three significant figures.)
