AiS Challenge Team Abstract


Team Number: 056

School Name: Sandia Prep

Area of Science: Physics

Project Title: Moving Objects



The purpose of our project will be to calculate potential variables in near light speed movement of an object. The problem will deal with changes in mass as a result of speed, effective traveling and energy usage that would be required in such forms of travel. These problems can be calculated with the equations of the special and general theories of relativity, as well as the equations for gravity. This project's importance relates to calculating the amounts of energy required for such forms of travel, as well as tracking of the object being moved.
