Relativity Theory: Acceleration is Everything

  1. Jun 8, 2004 #1
    We assume that acceleration increases the energy state of all matter in the the frame accelerated, and that for the elevated energy level, translated into higher frequency rates for all affected matter, the efficiency of material dynamic processes becomes inversely less effecient in energy and force exchanges. This includes equilibrium state processes, velocity a constant. At relativistic velocities the accelerations have been enormous. The efficiency of the energy exchange and force exchnge processes of the matter accelerated decreases grossly as observed. Lower the energy level, increase the efficiency of process dynamics of the matter undergoing the process.

    What is observed in relativistic accelerations? More and more energy used for storing and loading than accelerating, inversely proportionately less for velocity increases.

    The lorentz term using velocity as the key to understanding the dynamkics of matter is shortsighted. Velocity is merely a measure of the limiting parameter for that particlular process under scrutiny: how acceleration affects matter is reflected in the current limited state reflected by velocity term. What is being ignored is the dynamics of complex energy flow in all material processes.

    As what the title of this thread indicates "Acceleration is Everything," I came up with an invariant formula that shows the relationship of acceleration, distance and the speed of light in vacuum.

    [tex] \vec{a} \cdot \vec{r} = c^2 [/tex]

    This says that the inner product of generalized acceleration, a, and a distance, r is a constant, the square of speed of light in vacuum, c.
