# When The Velocity Of A Relativistic Charged Particle Increases Its Specific Charge ______.

When the velocity of a relativistic charged particle increases, its specific charge decreases.

$$m = \frac{m0}{\sqrt{1-\frac{v^{2}}{c^{2}}}}$$

specific charge $$\frac{q}{m} = \frac{q}{m0}\sqrt{1 – \frac{v^{2}}{c^{2}}}$$

Therefore, as the velocity of a relativistic charged particle increases, the specific charge decreases.
