A student says in an answer "the effects of Einstein's theory of special relativity are only noticeable at speeds slightly less than the speed of light". Is this correct? Is there a situation where the effects of special relativity can be measured at very low speeds such as 1 cm/s? Yes. What is it?
Physics and Mathematics
What are the concepts in Physics and Mathematics that students find difficult? In this blog I will post tutorial points that I hope will stimulate thinking and so broaden the knowledge and understanding of students allowing them to write thorough examination responses. Tutorial sheets, structured from a student's point of view, will be posted on the HSC, IB and university level topics of Relativity, Electromagnetism, Mechanics, Quantum Physics and Calculus. The overall purpose of these pages is to encourage and promote learning in Physics and Mathematics and so open new horizons in learning.
