# Electromagnetic mass (transverse mass) by Lorentz

## Description

Due to the self-induction effect, electrostatic energy behaves as having some sort of momentum and “apparent” electromagnetic mass, which can increase the ordinary mechanical mass of the bodies. Electromagnetic radiation energy has momentum and mass.

The electromagnetic mass depends on the direction of the moving bodies with respect to the aether. The tranverse electromagnetic mass is related to the mass of an electron at rest and the speed of light.

(The conclusion is that no body can reach the speed of light because the mass becomes infinitely large at this velocity).

## Variables

m_{T} | The tranverse electromagnetic mass (kg) |

m_{0} | electron mass |

v | The speed of radiation (m/s) |

c | Speed of light |
