Since the other thread got moved for a reason that I do not understand, let me try to ask a question which belongs in this category.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose that the temperature of some object is T(t), where t is the time coordinate in the objects rest frame. Now, in reality nothing has aperfectlyconstant temperature, rather there are tiny fluctuations about some average temperature Te.

Suppose the temperature of some object in its rest frame is given by

[tex] T(t) = T_e + T_0 sin(\omega t) [/tex]

Where Te is the average temperature of the object, and T0 is the maximum amplitude of the temperature flux, and [tex] \frac{dT_0}{dt} = 0 [/tex], and [tex] \frac{d\omega}{dt} = 0 [/tex]

What does relativity say that the temperature is in a reference frame moving at a relative speed of v?

Regards,

Guru
