  • Physics terminologies


This is a course enlightening the  podcast related to The special Theory of relativity done with "John Wilson" , a physicist and author of the book " The Special Theory of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics ".

Watch the complete lectures to know about The Special Theory of Relativity .

Here , you will learn about the following topics :

Physics ( its definition) ,Scope of Physics and Introduction to the Special theory of relativity , Lorentz Transformations,  Galilean Invariance , Time dilation , Length contraction ,Simultaneity in Relativity,  Experimental Evidence for Time dilation and length contraction ,  Doppler Effect in Special Theory of Relativity ,  Longitudinal and Transverse Doppler effect , Red Shift of stars ( a phenomenon) , Book on Special Theory of Relativity .These topics will let you conceptualize the ideas of the Special Theory of Relativity , which is an interesting domain in the study of Physics .Special relativity is an explanation  of how speed  affects mass , time and space . The theory includes a way for the speed of light to define the relationship between energy and matter .Special relativity applies to all physical phenomena in the absence of gravity . General relativity explains the law of gravitation and its relation to other forces of nature. It applies to the cosmological and astrophysical realm, including astronomy.
