I had a question. I was wondering, special relativity says that the speed of light (c) cannot be brroken by anything or any force or signal. But I had a thought last night that has been boggeling me all day. Lets say that you have a solid meter stick, made of a totaly innelastic substance. The meter stick is completely rigid and cannot be bent. No if we lign up the meter stick so that the ends meet another object and hit one side of it, isnt the inpulse or force from the hit sent instantaineously, or quicker than the speed of light. This means that the signal surpasses the speed of light and is instantanious. I was wondering if my interpretation is wrong or if Im missing something.
