For an electron of mass m and charge –e moving with velocity v and acceleration dv/dt in an electric field of magnitude E, the accelerating force is put as vector F = eE(c – v)/c = m(dv/dt), where (c – v) is the relative velocity between the electrical force propagated with velocity of light c and the electron moving with velocity v. The electron is accelerated to the speed of light c or it revolves in a circle at a constant speed. The relativistic mass-velocity formula is correct for circular revolution and “mass” in that formula is the ratio of electrostatic force –eE to acceleration –v^2/r in a circle of radius r, which becomes infinitely large for rectilinear motion. An electrodynamics is developed for an electron accelerated to the speed of light at constant mass and with emission of radiation, contrary to classical and relativistic electrodynamics. Radiation occurs if there is a change in kinetic or potential energy of a moving electron.
