We therefore need to take relativistic effects into account.
This is unlike the non-relativistic case where they travel at right angles.In quantum mechanics, momentum is defined as an operator on the wave function.…
The container may even be subjected to a force which gives it an over-all velocity, or else (equivalently) it may be viewed from an inertial frame in which it has an over-all velocity (that is, technically, a frame in which its center of mass has a velocity).In this case, its total relativistic mass and energy increase.…
Quantum field theory is a generalization of quantum mechanics.Krivchenkov believed that people need to understand at least the non-relativistic theory.He almost asked students to excuse him for the field theory, where only perturbation theory can be offered.…
Compared to children, adolescents are more likely to question others' assertions, and less likely to accept facts as absolute truths.Through experience outside the family circle, they learn that rules they were taught as absolute are in fact relativistic.They begin to differentiate between rules instituted out of common sense -- not touching a hot stove -- and those that are based on culturally-relative standards (codes of etiquette, not dating until a certain age), a delineation that younger children do not make.…
However, in his first paper on (1905), he treated m as what would now be called the rest mass.Some claim that (in later years) he did not like the idea of "relativistic mass".…
Then also the total energy is no longer a constant (because the four vector energy with linear momentum is).The finite speed of light also makes it important to allow for light-time effects, both classical and relativistic.Planets can no longer be considered as particles, but their shape and density must also be considered.…
In Redshift Rendezvous (1990) by John E. Stith hyperspace is a layer of space in which the speed of light is ten meters per second.People aboard a passenger craft in this region experience relativistic effects in daily life.Flick a light switch and the room slowly fills with light.…
Particle accelerators routinely accelerate and measure the properties of particles moving at near the speed of light, where their behavior is completely consistent with relativity theory and inconsistent with the earlier Newtonian mechanics.These machines would simply not work if they were not engineered according to relativistic principles.In addition, a considerable number of modern experiments have been conducted to test special relativity.…
A relativistic speed is a speed which is a significant proportion of the speed of light.Therefore scientific analysis must take the consequences of special relativity into account.…
He sought exact solutions of Einstein's equations: model universes consistent with the laws of general relativity that are simple enough to allow for an explicit description in terms of basic mathematical expressions.These exact solutions play a key role when it comes to building general-relativistic models of physical situations.However, general relativity is a fully covariant theory - its laws are the same, independent of which coordinates are chosen to describe a given situation.…
The term relativistic mass is also sometimes used.
The fact that the density is positive definite and convected according to this continuity equation, implies that we may integrate the density over a certain domain and set the total to 1, and this condition will be maintained by the conservation law.A proper relativistic theory with a probability density current must also share this feature.…
When the velocity is small, the relativistic mass and the rest mass are almost exactly the same.Also Einstein (following Hendrik Lorentz and Max Abraham) used velocity -- and direction-dependent mass concepts (longitudinal and transverse mass) in his 1905 electrodynamics paper and in another paper in 1906.…
However, since the discovery of neutrino oscillations it is assumed that they are massive.Thus they should travel slightly slower than the speed of light, otherwise their relativistic energy would become infinitely large.…
A relativistic star is a rotating neutron star whose behavior is well described by general relativity, but not by classical mechanics.Relativistic stars are one possible source to allow gravitational waves to be studied.Another definition of a relativistic star is one with the equation of state of a special relativistic gas.…
The crew is broken into three factions -- the primitives, the virtuals, and a survivalist faction, Superet.Their journey is a round trip taking them to the future of our solar system through relativistic time dilation.Among the factions, the primitives are a eugenics project for Garry Uvarov who hopes to lengthen the lives of humanity without the use of Anti-Senescence (anagathic or life-extension) technology.…
Without relativistic effects, gold would look silvery, rather than yellow.
He tried to modify Newton's law of gravitation so that it assumes a Lorentz-covariant form.He noted that there were many possibilities for a relativistic law, and he discussed two of them.…
There are also many examples of conversion of relativistic kinetic energy into rest energy.
