PHYSICS 220/230

Lab 11: Relativity Films

 

 

We will view two films showing experiments that can only be interpreted correctly using the ideas of special relativity. The first film, The Ultimate Speed, shows a measurement of the maximum speed to which an electron can be accelerated. The second film, Time Dilation, shows the way in which observers view parameters when they are in different frames of reference moving at constant speed with respect to each other.
