Speed and Observation

  1. Jul 14, 2016 #1
    If car passes very very very quickly in front of you, you will not be able to see it...
    We will not be able to observe it...
    As seeing is believing,
    So which proof we have that this car really existed and passed in front of us???I Think the concept of electrostatic isn't it?

    Human eyes and brain are not perfect. They cannot detect very short pulses of light. Your ears might detect the sonic boom.

    Perhaps you need to expand the question?
