In conventional SRT, mass is said to increase with speed according to the factor g in the equation m = g x mo. Also, the energy of mass m is expressed by E = mc2. It is customary to identify E in this latter equation as the combination of rest energy and kinetic energy. This paper examines the implication of assuming E also includes the particle's potential energy, and the additional implication of 'potential mass' in all m = E/c2. The Bohr Atom Theory is used for a test.
