Momentum is derived by the equation p = mv, where p is the momentum, m is the mass and v its velocity. Since the maximum velocity of anything in the universe is c then the potential maximum momentum is p = mc. If we then integrate this we find thatm + Cequates to kinetic energy. In this case equaling (1/2)mc^2 + C. This is understandable since the potential maximum kinetic energy for the mass has been derived from the potential maximum momentum. If we disregard C then the kinetic energy is half the systems total energy.Kinetic energy is in its proper form as ke = (1/2)mv^2. If we then say e = mv^2 what would this mean?

We can take the equation

You haven't seen where I am going yet. This is totally a unbalanced and invalid equation. There is a reason for it.
