    I walked into Organic Chemistry, laughing with my friend about an article we had read on how to levitate a frog with a magnet. We were hysterical just imagining what must have triggered an internationally respected scientist to turn the other and say “Dude, I bet we can’t levitate this frog with a magnet!” As team leader for our balancing equations group, “The Balancenators”, I asked the team to take our seats at the lab tables and remembered that we had a substitute from Ohlone College coming

Special Relativity concerns itself with motions that are comparable with the speed of light.It has several counter-intuitive consequences. One of such is the car in the garage paradox. It’s one of the version of the pole in the barn paradox. It is a paradox resulting from the phenomenon of length contraction. 2 Brief Overview of Special Relativity Special Relativity applies to the

    Relativity In the very beginning of 20th century a young German physicist of age 26 named Albert Einstein showed that how measurement of time and space are affected by motion between an observer and what is being observed. There is no other opinion in this fact that Theory of relativity had brought a new revolution in the era of physics. Relativity connects space and time, matter and energy, electricity and magnetism-links that are crucial to our understanding of this physical universe. From relativity

    any human who chooses to take on it. Albert Einstein is one of the greatest scientists in the 20th century who developed the theory named Special Relativity. The ideas of Special Relativity are very hard to imagine because they aren 't those things that we experience in everyday life, but scientists have already confirmed them. The Special Relativity theory says that space and time are really the aspects of one thing which is the space-time. There 's a speed range of 300,000 kilometers per second

    Time Dilation In Albert Einstein’s theory of special relativity, it is stated that an object at rest would perceive time slower than an object that is in motion. This theory is called time dilation. There are two known types of time dilation, gravitational and length contraction. Time dilation was born out of Einstein's theory of special relativity. Before Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity had been developed, the scientific world relied on theories such as Isaacs Newton's laws of planetary

    One of the most important physical constants in the world of Physics is the speed of light in a vacuum. This is the limiting speed for all material objects according to Einstein’s theory of relativity. The speed of light in a vacuum, or c, is what controls the laws of both the general and special relativity. Whenever light is in a vacuum, its speed has an exact value of c, no matter who measures it. Even if the vacuum is inside a box in a rocket traveling away from earth, both an astronaut in the
