Relativity Metric Program Documents
Kiril Simov and
The Relativity Metric program displays the effect of relative motion on the spatial and temporal separation of events in special relativity. In the default scenario, by dragging the red circle at the center of the simulation, two events are observed in a stationary reference frame (the Other Frame) and the same two events are depicted in another reference frame (the Home Frame). The spatial and temporal separation between the two evens can be set by dragging the red circle or by using the text boxes provided. The slider can be used to change the relative speed between the two frames. The square of the space-time interval, which is invariant, is also shown.
