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

By Thomas A. Orofino Ph.D.

This e-book is ready the idea of designated fairly (SR), the introductory components of which, and different basic reviews on technology and physics previous it, will be of curiosity to the final reader. the choice description of SR proposed and built within the ebook is largely that of Newton’s classical physics, aside from the serious extra of a step thoroughly expressing the trip time of sunshine signs conveying details 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 types fluctuate from these linked to the phenomena on the position of the development developing them, as the mild indications, conveying the data from resource to observer, contain yes trip occasions of the signs themselves. hence, until eventually deciphered, they don't seem to be an easy illustration of occasions within the occasion of curiosity. while the choice method of illustration of SR constructed during this ebook is utilized, an analogous effects as these from the normal methods of SR are acquired. The expressions for amounts corresponding to strength and momentum fluctuate from the corresponding amounts in Newton’s version for area and time. the choice procedure within the publication easily presents a extra intuitive path to and a logical rationalization of the relativistic process.
