Byline:
K. Simov and W. Christian
Post a comment | Relations
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…
Simultaneous Events Program  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:

Byline:
K. Simov and W. Christian
View comments | Relations
The Simultaneous Events program displays the effect of relative motion on the relative ordering of events in special relativity. In the default scenario two simultaneous events are…
Twin Paradox Program  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
K. Simov and W. Christian
Post a comment | Relations
The Twin Paradox program displays the effect of time dilation on a moving twin as seen from a stationary twin. In the default scenario the light signals sent from the moving twin are…
Ejs Simultaneity Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
J. Aguirregabiria; Editor: W. Christian
Post a comment
The Ejs Simultaneity model displays the effect of relative motion on the relative ordering of the detection of events. The wave source and two equidistant detectors are at rest in…
