Ejs Einstein’s Train and Tunnel Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
J. Aguirregabiria; Editor: W. Christian
Post a comment
The Ejs Einstein’s Train and Tunnel model displays the famous thought experiment from special relativity where a train enters a tunnel as seen from two points of view. In one case…
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…
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…

The Relativity on Rotated Graph Paper Model displays Minkowski spacetime diagrams on rotated graph paper.  The worldlines of three inertial observers carrying horizontal light clocks…
Minkowski Diagram Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
J. Aguirregabiria
Post a comment | Relations
The Minkowski Diagram model displays the spacetime diagrams for two inertial observers. One or two events may be displayed and moved with the mouse. Optionally, the corresponding…
Simultaneity Spacetime Diagram Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
Post a comment | Relations
The Simultaneity Spacetime Diagram model uses light-trajectories to show the effect of relative motion when observing (recording) events in special relativity. In the default…
