The Lorentz factor is the factor by which time, length, and mass change for an object moving at speeds close to the speed of light (relativistic speeds). It is named after the Dutch physicist Hendrik Lorentz.

The equation is:

\gamma = \frac{1}{\sqrt{1 - (\frac{v}{c})^2}}

where v is the speed of the object and c is the speed of light. The quantity (v/c) is often labeled \beta (beta) and so the above equation can be rewritten:

\gamma = \frac{1}{\sqrt{1 - \beta^2}}
