104. Jim Doyle S Special Relativity Pages
A growing collection of pages on special relativity, including Special Relativity in under 15 Minutes!
Albert Einstein published his Special Theory of Relativity in 1905. This theory has had a major impact on all our lives, although how and why is not always obvious. The purpose of these web pages is to try to relate the theory in a clear, concise and understandable way, with the mathematics and technicalities kept mostly to one side. While relativity has a reputation for being difficult much of it can be understood by anyone. NEW! The Einstein was Wrong!!! pages...

Title: Simple derivation of the special theory of relativity without the speed of light axiom
Authors: Ondrej Certik (Submitted on 17 Oct 2007) Abstract: We show a very simple yet rigorous derivation of the invariance of the space-time interval (and hence the whole special relativity) just from the isotropy, homogeneity and a principle of relativity, without the need of the speed of light axiom. This article is intended as a textbook explanation of the special relativity. Comments: 14 pages, submitted to Eur. J. Phys Subjects: Classical Physics (physics.class-ph) Cite as: arXiv:0710.3398v1 [physics.class-ph]

UNIT 57 THE GENERAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY Written for students in the USC Self-paced Astronomy courses NOTE: This Unit assumes you have studied Unit 56. The Learning Objectives and references are in the Self-Paced Study Guide Essay on the General Theory of Relativity by John L. Safko A. General Principle of Covariance (or Only the Tides are Real) Consider yourself in an elevator. You cannot see outside, so you must determine the nature of the surrounding universe by local experiments. You let go of a coin and it falls to the bottom of the elevator. Aha you say, I am at rest on Earth. But, you could be in a spaceship that is accelerating and far from any other object. This is shown in Fig. 57- Fig. 57-1
Locally being at rest on the Earth's surface is equivalent to being in a uniformly accelerated spaceship. Consider the opposite case. You float from the floor and the coin does not fall when you release it. Aha you say again, I am in space far from any other body. But, you could be freely falling towards the Earth as shown in Fig. 57-2. Fig. 57-2:

Click here to go to the Physics Virtual Bookshelf. Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity of 1905 concerns itself with observers who are in uniform relative motion. His General Theory of Relativity of 1916 considers observers in any state of relative motion including acceleration. It will turn out that this will also be a theory of gravitation. This document introduces the General Theory of Relativity.
Three "Easy" Pieces
Einstein used three different pieces to built the General Theory of Relativity, which we describe here.
Piece 1 - Geometry is Physics
Think of a wheel constructed of circular rods connected by spokes. The length of each rod, the circumference of the circle, is related to the radius r of the circle: the rods at larger radii are longer. You may know that the length L of the rod is 2 times the radius. Here is a plot of how the length of the rod will vary with its radius. Think of a rod with a radius r and length L . Then another rod with a radius 2 r will have a length of 2 L But what if the wheel is spinning at a high rate? We know from Special Relativity that rods that are moving relative to us have their lengths contracted along their direction of their motion. Thus the circular rods will have their length's contracted. The motion of the spokes of the wheel is perpendicular to their length, so we will conclude from Special Relativity that their lengths will not be contracted.

General Relativity
Readings: Ch 24, section 24-2
Key Ideas
General Relativity:
Modern Theory of Gravitation
Matter tells spacetime how to curve.
Curved spacetime tells matter how to move.
Tests of General Relativity:
Perihelion Precession of Mercury
Bending of Starlight near the Sun
Newtonian Gravity
  • Matter tells gravitation how to exert a Force
  • A Force tells matter how to accelerate
A mass m is accelerated by another mass M:
Einstein's Discontents
Einstein had two objections to Newton's formulation of Gravity:
  • The force law (line 1) implies instantaneous knowledge of the distance, R, but information is only transmitted at the speed of light
  • disappears from the final acceleration (line 3). This seems to be coincidental.
    "I frame no hypothesis."
    Newton could not explain what gravity was
  • He asserted that Gravity is an "action at a distance".
  • He had no hypothesis for what "agent" communicates the gravitational force across empty space.
  • People assumed that gravity worked as described by Newton, but didn't seem to worry about why it worked that way...
