Hello I am new here and I am just Junior college student. So please use simpler terms. I need to know that does relativity work for mediums like air and water. I mean the equations of time dilation and length contraction, do they work for other mediums. If so shall I take C as the speed of light in vacuum or thr speed at that particular medium? Thank You.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
