    Speed of a moving object, according to another moving object

    Homework Statement Special Relativity Question. Consider objects 1 and 2 moving in the lab frame; they both start at the origin, and #1 moves with a speed u and #2 moves with a speed v. They both move in straight lines, with an angle θ between their trajectories (again in the lab frame). What...

    I Interactive Minkowski Diagram Tool

    I've made a Interative Minkowski Diagram Tool, You can add events, connect events and add world lines. Lorentz transformation for moving frames also present. I've added support for frame velocities equal or greater than light speeds(but the animations are a mess for ftl...

    B Einstein relativity is invalid

    Hi, Need your help to unravel the claims made by a poster in my local forum, if it has any merits. I do not have the expertise to evaluate his claims but am hoping if you can give me a few points on his line of reasoning, if it is faulty or not. I have a general background in undergraduate...

    Homework Help -- Relative Velocity

    <Moderator note: moved from technical forums, so no template> Problem: Two trains (A and B) are moving along parallel tracks at different speeds. A person sitting on train A looks out the window and sees two things happen: a firecracker explodes right outside his window, and, exactly 1.0...

    I Use Lorentz Force to Find Magnetic Field Components

    So I am constructing an analogy between the self replicating fracturing effect on thin films and the path of a charged particle. (Qualitatively, several cracks have similar shapes to charged particle motion) I won't go into the details of the fracture mechanics, so I will only use E+M...

    Observing from Earth the clock in a spaceship

    Homework Statement A spaceship leaves Earth at time ##t=0## with constant speed ##u##. Its clock is synchronized with the terrestrial one. At time T an earthling reads with an optical telescope the clock inside the spaceship. What value does he read? Homework Equations Lorentz equations. The...
