Is There a Connection Between Space, Time, and Velocity?

In summary, the conversation discusses the relationship between space and time and how they are often referred to together as a package. There is a mention of Maxwell's discovery of the constant speed of light and how it led to the development of Einstein's theory of relativity. The idea of quantization is also brought up, along with the question of why velocity is not considered as part of the space-time concept.

[SOLVED] y space and time in package?

why do they always speak about space and time in package. are this magnitudes sort of related?

To clarify the question a little; are you asking why space and time are reffered to as a package together (spacetime), or why both space and time are spoken of as if they come in little packages (quantised)?

Maxwell created an open wound in the world of Physics when he proved that the speed of light was independent of the motion of the observer. So all things material still obeyed the Galleilan velocity transform laws (essentially, velocities add) while electrical phenomena did not. This wound remained open for nearly 50yrs until Einstein's paper on relativity was published. A.E. used Maxwells constant speed of light to derive Lorentzes emperical electrical velocity transform equations. To accomplish this he linked space and time, showing that that they are intimitly tied together.

It is not clear what you mean by "magnitudes sort of related" Space and time are different axis of a coordinate system related by c, the speed of light.

I meant why not append this package with some velocity cause space and time are related thru velocity?
why should not that expression go space-time-velocity concept for example?
 

1. What is the concept of Y space and time in package?

Y space and time in package refers to the theory that space and time are interconnected and can be thought of as a single entity. This concept is often used in physics and cosmology to understand the nature of the universe.

2. How does Y space and time in package differ from traditional views of space and time?

Traditional views of space and time see them as separate and independent entities. However, the concept of Y space and time in package suggests that they are interconnected and can be understood together.

3. What is the role of Y space and time in package in understanding the universe?

Y space and time in package plays a crucial role in understanding the universe by providing a framework for understanding the relationship between space and time. It also helps to explain phenomena such as gravity and the expansion of the universe.

4. How is Y space and time in package related to Einstein's theory of relativity?

Y space and time in package is closely related to Einstein's theory of relativity, particularly the concept of spacetime. Both theories suggest that space and time are not separate, but rather a unified entity that can be affected by mass and energy.

5. What potential applications does Y space and time in package have?

The concept of Y space and time in package has potential applications in various fields, including cosmology, physics, and philosophy. It can help to better understand the nature of the universe and potentially lead to new discoveries and advancements in science and technology.
