Remember these constants? 0 = permittivity of free space 0 = permeability of free space Fundamental constants of nature In 1865, Scottish physicist James Clerk Maxwell hypothesized electromagnetic waves and calculated that they would have to travel at a specific speed in a vacuum: Do the calculation. What do you get? This is the measured speed of light! Electromagnetic Waves do exist, and light must be one of them!
const. velocity Our Reference Frame determines where and when we observe an event: x y z x y z In both cases, the Reference Frame is at rest with respect to the observer
For each of the cases below, what path does the observer see the ball follow after he throws it straight up? on the ground in a truck with constant velocity in a truck with constant acceleration Inertial Reference Frames (constant velocity) Non-Inertial Reference Frame
Special Relativity Postulates 1) The laws of physics are the same in any inertial reference frame. 2) The speed of light in a vacuum (c) has the same value when measured in any inertial reference frame, even if the light source is moving relative to it. speed of truck speed of light Result
For speeds far less than c, relativity is barely noticeable b) Length Contraction (things shrink) a) Time Dilation (time slows down) For greater speeds, observers in different reference frames experience:
Time Dilation To an observer on the ground, what path does the light follow? Now imagine putting it on a spaceship. Imagine a “light clock”
Time Dilation Equation t 0 = proper time (measured in the same reference frame as the events are occurring) t = time measured by an observer in a different reference frame v = relative speed between the two reference frames c = 3.00 x 10 8 m/s So what does this all mean ???
<1 t > t 0 Web Link: Time DilationTime Dilation Proof: 2) GPS and airplane navigation must use it in their calculations! 1) Atomic clocks on jets slow by precisely this amount 3) Muons arrive at earth’s surface Web Link: Muon Time DilationMuon Time Dilation Time slows down in a reference frame that is moving relative to the observer !
Ex: An observer on the ground is monitoring an astronaut in a spacecraft that is traveling at a speed of 5 x 10 7 m/s. On average, a human heart beats 70 times per minute. Calculate the time between heartbeats and the number of heartbeats per day for a) the person on earth (this part is easy) b) the space traveler, as monitored from earth
So the guy on the ground sees the guy on the spaceship aging more slowly. What does the guy on the spaceship see when he looks at the guy on the ground ??
The Twin Paradox One twin travels at a speed of.80c to a galaxy 8 light years away and and then travels back to earth at the same speed. Upon his return he will be 8 years younger than his twin! How is this different from the previous example ??
Understanding Time Dilation x y Constant speed in x-direction More y-motion, less x-motion time space Sitting still (not moving through space) More motion through space, less motion through time Just think of time as the 4 th dimension
Length Contraction L0L0 Observer (t) (t0)(t0) v v = relative speed L 0 = proper length (measured by observer at rest with respect to object/distance) L = length measured from a different reference frame c = 3.00 x 10 8 m/s
Length Contraction Equation <1 Web Link: Length ContractionLength Contraction *Only in the direction of motion: Distances/lengths appear shorter when moving relative to the observer. v
Ex: Passing spaceships spaceship 1 (2.0 x 10 8 m/s) spaceship 2 (at rest) Both have a proper length of 8.5 m. How long does spaceship 1 look to spaceship 2 ? How long does spaceship 2 look to spaceship 1 ?
Recall: momentum = p = mv m1m1 v1v1 m2m2 v2v2 m 1 v 1 + m 2 v 2 = constant Conservation of Momentum: When things are moving close to the speed of light, this equation is way off ! We need to consider…
Relativistic Momentum <1 >mv What happens if we use this equation when v is very small ? Are there any situations in which things move so fast that we have to use this equation? If we calculate momentum this way for high speeds, conservation of momentum is obeyed.
Stanford Linear Particle Accelerator Electrons accelerate to 99.99999997% speed of light ! Momentum is 40,000 times greater than mv !
Total Energy of an Object = E = mc 2 Mass-Energy Equivalence Mass Energy conserved together If v=0 : E = mc 2 0 = rest energy This much energy is equivalent to This much mass
E 0 = mc 2 A huge amount of energy A small mass The rest energy of a 46 gram golf ball could be used to operate a 75-Watt light bulb for 1.7 million years!
Our country uses about 3.3 trillion kWhrs of energy per year. Find the amount of mass that is equivalent to this much energy. Ex:
E 0 = mc 2 If energy changes Mass must change also When a 1 kg ball falls 200 m and lands on the ground, by how much does its mass change? Why don’t we notice this ?
More examples of Mass-Energy Equivalence… Ex: Matter meets antimatter e-e- electron e+e+ positron + = gamma rays 2 (9.11x10 -31 kg) mass = 0 pure energy People used to wonder if the moon was made of antimatter
Ex: Nuclear Power (Fission) Big nucleus 2 smaller nuclei (less total mass, less energy) Web Link: FissionFission
Ex: The Sun (Fusion) Two small nuclei (less total mass, less energy) Larger nucleus Web Link: FusionFusion
The sun loses over 4 billion kg per second due to fusion (Don’t worry, it will last for another 5 billion years or so)
Recall:E 0 = mc 2 = rest energy If an object is moving, its total energy is the sum of its rest energy and its kinetic energy: E = E 0 + KE We can solve for KE… Relativistic Kinetic Energy What happens to this equation if an object is traveling at the speed of light? Objects with mass cannot reach the speed of light
Recall that all these effects of Special Relativity would only become noticeable to us as speeds approach the speed of light. Let’s try to get an idea of how fast light really is… Traveling at the speed of light, just how far around the earth could you go in 1 second?

When they finally tried it out with electrons, the interference pattern corresponded perfectly to this wavelength! OK, so we’ve accepted the fact that waves act like particles (have momentum, collisions, etc.) In 1923 Prince Louis de Broglie suggested for the first time that maybe particles act like waves: De Broglie Wavelength
Ex: Find the de Broglie wavelength of a car with a mass of 1000 kg traveling at a speed of 30 m/s.
So what does this wavelength really mean for particles?? It’s a Probability Wave: 100 electrons 3000 electrons 70000 electrons

The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle “The more precisely the position is determined, the less precisely the momentum is known” - Heisenberg, Uncertainty paper, 1927 If x = uncertainty in position, and p = uncertainty in momentum, then
Ex: Within an atom, the uncertainty in an electron’s position is 10 -10 m (the size of the atom). Find the uncertainty in the electron’s speed.
Ex: The marble (m=25 g) is somewhere within the box. Find the uncertainty in the marble’s speed. 10 cm
Heisenberg is out for a drive when he’s stopped by a traffic cop. The cop says “Do you know how fast you were going?” Heisenberg says “No, but I know where I am.”
