 The Relativity Game 
Challenge what you know!
Note: For Fermilab's Time
Dilation Challenge and The Relativity Game, you need
Shockwave. You may painlessly Download
Shockwave here if you do not have it.
Lesson 2: Time

Question 1:
 A space ship with a mass of
8,000 kg would have what mass if it were traveling at
0.77 c?
Question 2:
 A muon has a mass of 1.9 x
10^{28} kg when at rest. What is the mass of
a muon if it travels at 0.998 c?
Question 3:
 The element iron has an
atomic
mass of 55.9
amu's.
What is the mass of a carbon atom if it travels at
0.65 c?
