A muon decays with a mean lifetime of 2.2*10 -6 s as measured in a frame of reference in which it is at rest. If a muon is moving at 0.99c relative to the earth, what will you measure its mea lifetime to be? ANS: © 2005 Pearson Education

24 All of the fundamental laws of physics have the same form in all inertial frames of reference. The speed of light in vacuum is the same in all inertial frames and is independent of the motion of the source. Simultaneity is not an absolute concept; events that are simultaneous in one frame are not necessarily simultaneous in a second frame moving relative to the first.

25 If two events occur at the same space point in a particular frame of reference, the time interval t 0 between the events as measured in that frame is called a proper time interval. If this frame moves with constant velocity u relative to a second frame, the time interval t between the events as observed in the second frame is longer than t 0. This effect is called time dilation. (Examples 37.1 through 37.3) © 2005 Pearson Education

26 If two points are at rest in a particular frame of reference, the distance l 0 between the points as measured in that frame is called a proper length. If this frame moves with constant velocity u relative to a second frame and the distances are measured parallel to the motion, the distance l between the points as measured in the second frame is shorter than l 0. This effect is called length contraction. (See Examples 37.4 through 37.6) © 2005 Pearson Education

27 The Lorentz coordinate transformation relates the coordinate and time of an event in an inertial frame S to the coordinates and time of the same event as observed in a second inertial frame S moving at velocity u relative to the first. For one-dimensional motion, a particles velocities v x in S and v x in S are related by the Lorentz velocity transformation. (See Examples 37.7 and 37.8) © 2005 Pearson Education

28 The Doppler effect is the frequency shift in light from a source due to the relative motion of source and observer. For a source moving toward the observer with speed u, Eq.(37.25) gives the received frequency f in terms of the emitted frequency f 0.(See Example 37.9)

29 For a particle of rest mass m moving with velocity, the relativistic momentum is given by Eq. (37.27) or (37.31) and the relativistic kinetic energy K is given by Eq. (37.36). The total energy E is the sum of the kinetic energy and the rest energy mc 2. The total energy can also be expressed in terms of the magnitude of momentum p and rest mass m. (See Examples through 37.12) © 2005 Pearson Education

30 The special theory of relativity is a generalization of Newtonian mechanics. All the principles of Newtonian mechanics are present as limiting cases when all the speeds are small compared to c. Further generalization to include noninertial frames of reference and their relation to gravitational fields leads to the general theory of relativity.
