Unformatted text preview: d p dt = F , (5) where p is the particle momentum vector. Take the dot product of this equation with p to obtain p d p dt = F p , (6) which can be rearranged in a fashion similar to that of Eq.(3) to give 1 2 dp 2 dt = F p . (7) Since p 2 = 2 mT , Eq.(7) can be rewritten in the desired form d ( mT ) dt = F p . (8) 1...
