In a standard problem of an electron released from the negative plate in an E field between 2 parallel plates in which the velocity must be determined why can the Lorentz transformation be used (involving v^2/c^2) when the electron is undergoing acceleration and there is nothing in the transformations concerning acceleration? (I know the E field parallel o the direction of motion is unchanged) How does one justify using these transformations in a system undergoing acceleration?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
