The three main effects of SR occur in inertial frames and change the description of space-time relative to a particular observer. My question here is how do these effects occur on Earth, since we know that motion on Earth is non-inertial. I know that we travel at small speeds and that we can't really perceive them, but if we could travel at greater speeds undergoing circular motion on the surface of Earth, what would happen, and how would it differ from the standard definition of these 3 effects in inertial frames?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
