Einstiens Theory on Relativity

  1. Aug 21, 2012 #1
    I have read Albert Einstien theory of relativity and I don't quite understand what he is trying to say state. Can someone please shed some light so that I can understand what he is trying to convey?

    I never heard of Albert Einstien--who is he?

    Perhaps you mean Albert Einstein? What have you read? Have you read the first part of his 1905 paper introducing Special Relativity?

    This is utterly vague. It appears as if you want a whole lesson on Relativity, which is not something that can be done on a forum.

    Give us the exact reference to what you've been reading. Now start from the very beginning. At what point did you stop understanding? And what is your educational background so that no one will be responding using stuff that you can't comprehend?

    I apologize for the miss guided way that I miss spelled his name. I hadn't realized it until now. However, the topic is meant to try to clarify the concept that he was trying to convey. I'm not asking for the entire thing just a brief over view that's all.

    You just said " the topic is meant to try to clarify the concept that he was trying to convey" with one breath and then with the next said "I'm not asking for the entire thing".

    Reread post #3, please, and do what it says.

    Then you may have some specific questions that can be addressed here.

    We have no ability to read minds. And you still appear to want wholesale lessons on Relativity. That is not going to happen.

    This thread is done.
