An Alternative Approach To Special Relativity by Thomas A. Orofino Ph.D.

By Thomas A. Orofino Ph.D.

This ebook is ready the idea of exact fairly (SR), the introductory components of which, and different basic reviews on technological know-how and physics previous it, will be of curiosity to the overall reader. the choice description of SR proposed and constructed within the e-book is largely that of Newton’s classical physics, with the exception of the severe extra of a step accurately expressing the commute time of sunshine signs conveying info to the observer. the shape of that step, in flip, is dictated via the necessities of SR as expressed via its essence, the Lorentz transformation. traditional interpretations of SR phenomena are because the observer perceives them, in altered descriptions of house and time. The altered models fluctuate from these linked to the phenomena on the position of the development growing them, as the mild indications, conveying the data from resource to observer, contain convinced commute occasions of the indications themselves. therefore, until eventually deciphered, they aren't an easy illustration of instances within the occasion of curiosity. whilst the choice method of illustration of SR constructed during this publication is utilized, an identical effects as these from the normal ways of SR are received. The expressions for amounts corresponding to power and momentum vary from the corresponding amounts in Newton’s version for area and time. the choice procedure within the e-book easily presents a extra intuitive path to and a logical clarification of the relativistic process.
