The question concerns the difference between gravitational mass and inertial mass. Gravitational mass produces weight in a gravitational field.

Inertial mass is a combination of gravitational mass and momentum.

Gravitational mass is due to spherical energy patterns.

There is no such thing as "spherical energy patterns". In fact there's no such thing as energy patterns whatsoever. This forum is not a place for your own personal theories of gravity. That's what the New Theories forum is for. This thread is about relativistic mass and weight. It's far from being a complex question. Weight depends on speed - Period!Please stop taking this thread off topic with all that nonsense.

I came across a special relativity text which says A particle does not become heavier with increasing speed.

Do you believe the author is correct? What would you expect would happen to the magnitude of the gravitational field if the source of the field was moving?

Gravitational verses inertial mass The question concerns the difference between gravitational mass and inertial mass. Gravitational mass produces weight in a gravitational field. Inertial mass is a combination of gravitational mass and momentum. Gravitational mass is due to spherical energy patterns. Thus if you have a ball of steel on a surface and heat it up, the ball does not move. Yet its energy has been increased and it weighs more. All the energy is confined to a simple sphere. Now let us take the ball lying on a plane and push it. We then have linear photonic energy added to the ball. This gives us spherical energy patters and linear energy patterns. Some of the energy added to the ball will result in additional spherical energy patterns. Some of it will be a combination of spherical energy patterns and linear energy patterns. Thus we get a gravitational mass increase and an even larger inertial mass where the inertial mass would the equivalent mass if all the energy was converted into spherical energy. How can we write equations to approximate the masses? Einstein’s mass verses velocity equations provide an approximation for the gravitational mass. His clock equations show a slowing of the clock in orbit above the Earth. This is caused by a root mean square type response and thus the same factor is good for the gravitational mass equations. Mg = Mo/[1-(V/C)^2]^0.5 Therefore the gravitational mass increases with velocity. What happens to the inertial mass? We need to increase the equivalent mass due to the linear motion which causes a combination of spherical and linear energy patterns. What is the best equation to do this job? The Radar Department libraries of Defense companies have studies for this problem. They use a Doppler solution in which the Doppler mass in the front of the object is larger and the rearward mass is smaller. Thus we get a combination of Doppler and Einstein. This produces an inertial mass of Mi = Mo/[1-(V/C)^2] Notice that the inertial mass is larger than the gravitational mass by a second Einsteinian factor. Is this a good answer? It matches the energy necessary to bring a proton toward light speed pretty good. The big problem is that the actual solution would require a Fourier series non-linear analysis. For myself I use the Doppler for the original mass and the root mean square of Doppler equals Einstein and then a double Doppler for the inertial mass. The best we can do is an approximation.
