LOG#008. Length contraction.

Once we introduce the postulates of special relativity and we have deduced the generalization of galilean transformations for electromagnetism and mechanics, the Lorentz transformation. We can deduce some interesting results. Suppose we have two events and , whose coordinates of … Continue reading

LOG#007. Time dilation.

Suppose two events happening in the S’-frame at the same point at different times. and . What is the temporal separation in the S-frame? According to Lorentz transformations, it is: or equivalently i.e. Of course, in the parallel case, if … Continue reading
