Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity⤴

from @ fizzics

We started our study of Einstein’s special theory of relativity this week.  Special relativity is tricky get your head round, so I’ve put together a collection of videos that help to explain the ideas we’re going to consider.  Let’s start with a video about the speed of light. The next video follows Einstein’s thought process ... Read more

evidence that special relativity is real⤴

from @ fizzics

For the past two weeks, we’ve been looking at equations that describe time and distance changing according to speed. It’s been quite heavy on theory and maths with no supporting evidence to suggest Einstein’s ideas were correct.  I want to address that lack of evidence by pointing you to some practical work that had been ...

We’ve been looking at Einstein’s special theory of relativity this week.  Special relativity is tricky get get your head round.  Let’s start with a video about the speed of light. We watched this video in class, it follows Einstein’s thought process as he worked through his special theory of relativity. special relativity from mr mackenzie on ... Read more
