Unformatted text preview: 2-2 (a) Scalar equations can be considered in this case because relativistic and classical velocities are in the same direction. p="mv=1.90mv=mv1#v c( )2$%&’()1 2*11#v c( )2$%&’()1 2=1.90*v=1#11.90+,-./2$%&&’())1 2c=0.85c(b) No change, because the masses cancel each other 2-3 As Fis parallel to v, scalar equations are used.
