Hi Guy,

Sounds like you are referring to invariant mass[^]. I am more or less referring to relativistic mass[^].

As you probably already know... if mass always stayed the same and never changed... we could easily accelerate to the speed of light... and actually beyond that limit... it is the increase of mass that prevents us from doing that.

If you drove in your car today... as you were driving around... you gained a small amount of mass while moving relative to your surrounding objects at rest.
Also... if you saved any files onto your hard drive today... the hard drive became slightly more massive.
If you take a rubber band... and stretch it with your fingers... the potential energy caused that rubber band to get slightly more massive.

Best Wishes,
-David Delaune
