: Einstein predicted that if a body moves at the speed of light : has a mass increase. If the same body stops at some point : would the extra mass will be converted back to energy or it : accumulates in the body with new increased mass?

if the mass of and object traveling at the speed of light,increases in mass,it upon stopping,this mass would return to energy being bled off in slowing the object.the mass would be equal to the ammount of energy used to gain the velocity of light.
