I Recently Went Through The Derivation Of The Lorentz Transformations Again...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm Reading A Book By Einstein On Sr And Gr.

It Came To Me That Instead Of Using Only K And K1 Frames When Explaining The Vertical Mental Experiment Of K1 With A Mirror Placed Vertically Above It At A Distance L And Moving On X Axis At Uniform S@v And K Being Observer We Could Use A Third Frame K2 And Leave K2 At Origin K2 On Its X=0.

For K And K1 We Have The T Dilation.

Now K2 Would Register, I Believe, Exactly What K Would Register After Vt If The Mirror Had Certain Characteristics That Could Take Part Of The Same Ray To X=vt And The Other Part Back To X=0.

Could This Special Mirror Be Found In The Electromagnetic Wave Itself?

Has Any Work Been Done On This Question?
