• Invariant mass - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invariant_mass The invariant mass, rest mass, intrinsic mass, proper mass, or in the case of bound systems simply mass, is the portion of the total mass of an object or system of objects that is independent of the overall motion of the system. More precisely, it is a characteristic of the system's total energy and momentum that is the same in all frames of reference related by Lorentz transformations.
  • Mass in special relativity - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_in_special_relativity Rest mass. The term mass in special relativity usually refers to the rest mass of the object, which is the Newtonian mass as measured by an observer moving along with the object. The invariant mass is another name for the rest mass of single particles. The more general invariant mass (calculated with a more complicated formula) loosely corresponds to the "rest mass" of a "system".

    physics.stackexchange.com/questions/328357/what-determines-invariant-mass Very succinctly: a system's total energy, as measured from its rest frame, is the invariant mass. The rest frame is determined by the frame wherein a system's total momentum is nought. You are probably a little confused by the photon and other so-called massless objects.

  • Invariant Mass vs Proper Mass | Physics Forums

    www.physicsforums.com/threads/invariant-mass-vs-proper-mass.1661 "Invariant Mass" vs "Proper Mass" I see that there are many people here who prefer the idea that the mass of a particle is the magnitude of the the particle's 4-momentum. However that is known as "Proper Mass" and some simply say "mass." However that idea is limited in use. It can't be...

One of the key numbers we can extract from mass and momentum is the invariant mass, a number independent of the Lorentz frame we are in \[W^2c^4 = (\sum_i E_i)^2 - (\sum_i {\vec{p}}_i)^2 c^2.\] This quantity takes it most transparent form in the center-of-mass, where \(\sum_i {\vec{p}}_i = 0\).

This is the "m" both in Newton's second law of motion, F=ma, and in Einstein's equation, E=mc 2 (in which E must be interpreted as the energy of the ...
  • Invariant Mass | Of Particular Significance

    profmattstrassler.com/articles-and-posts/.../a-technical-concept-invariant-mass The answer is called the invariant mass of particles B and C, and it equals the mass of particle A. Thus you can determine the mass of particle A simply by knowing E_B, E_C and theta_BC. If particles B and C aren’t that lightweight, a more precise answer is to replace 2 E_B E_C (1 – cos theta_BC) with
