    Classical kinetic energy:
    Ke = mv2/2

    Relativistic kinetic energy equation:
    Ke = mc2(1 / sqr(1 - (v/c)2) - 1)

    The taylor series for this:
    Ke = mv2/2 + 3mv4/(8c2) + 5mv6/(16c4) + 35mv8/(128c6) + . . .

    A trigonometrical equation for:
    Ke = mc2(1 / (1 / ((v/c) tan ((arc sin (v/c))/2)) - 1)

    And the algebraic form:
    Ke = mv2/(1 + sqr(1 - (v/c)2) - (v/c)2)
