What you'll learn
  • Understand the theory completely and be able to solve paradoxes of it
Requirements
  • You should be a little good in maths and have a simple background in physics
  • You should agree to leave your classical logic behind
Description

In this course the constant value of the speed of light will be the reason behind new concepts as it's a new strange property of light, it brought us many results and showed that classical mechanics is not precise enough for high speeds, it will take you away from your daily life logic, and will show you what it's hard for someone to imagine or believe, this is the genius theory of Einstein...

Who this course is for:
  • All physicists and some who love to delve into the theory
Course content
Expand all 10 lectures 01:05:44
+ Introduction
1 lecture 02:11

An introduction for the series of the special theory of relativity lectures, why it was built and a glance on its consequences.

Preview 02:11
+ The Theory
9 lectures 01:03:33

The meaning of the relativity in the strict form, and information about electromagnetic waves, what they are composed of, and what kind of waves they are.

Preview 07:49

Mickelson-Morley experiment, how and why it was carried out, and how Einstein explained its surprising consequences.

(2) Mickelson-Morley experiment
06:26

Lorentz transformation, a new mathematical coordinates transformation, which is built to be in agreement with the constant speed of light.

(3) Lorentz transformation
07:03

How Einstein built his theory of of relativity, its postulates and what it is based on

(4) The special theory of relativity foundation
04:39

Consequences of the theory, new outcomes away from the logic of classical mechanics in case high speeds are present

(5) Consequences of the special theory of relativity
07:11

The meaning of Minkowski space, the four dimensional spacetime, and its diagram with its extra complex time axis resulted from the theory

(6) Minkowski space and the spacetime diagram
07:25

How to apply everything we have learned on the spacetime diagram, to be our tool in case its hard for us to anticipate the results of any events present

(7) Applications on the spacetime diagram
04:20

How consequences of the relativity affect dynamics and its equations, bringing us relativistic formulas for mass, linear momentum, force, Kinetic energy and in turn the famous stored energy equation E=mc^2

(8) Dynamics of the relativity
09:16

How consequences of the relativity can be employed in life, and what new discoveries may arise in the future

(9) Applications of the special theory of the relativity
