Special Relativity

  1. Dec 2, 2006 #1
    We just started talking about it at school, and naturally i hav no idea what the teachers talking about!

    I was wondering if there are any good websites/videos online that explain it? Id be asking for a bit too much for a direct explantion from the physics buffs here :D

    The least technical site I know of about relativity which still might be useful:

    http://www.onestick.com/relativity/ "Winner of the Pirelli relativity challenge"

    If you have the background the other sites mentioned are good, but since you are having trouble understanding your teacher I suspect you may not have the background to understand them, either :-(. (I don't know for sure, of course, since I don't have any real idea of what your background is).
