# Why does the mass of an object increase when its speed approaches that of light?

Apoorva Arora IIT Roorkee
6 years ago
The relativistic mass of an object is given by
$m=\frac{m_{0}}{\sqrt{1-\frac{v^{2}}{c^{2}}}}$
Therefore, as the velocity increases, and approaches the speed of light, the mass keeps on increasing and approaches infinity.
