Mass

Mass m and energy bend spacetime, and affect the movement of particles, including light.

 


Explanation

Mass is the degree to which a particle maintains in its movement. It is expressed in grams or in MeV/c2. If a particle would be at rest, you have the rest mass m0. Near the speed of light, particles have a higher mass. This is called the relativistic mass mv.
