Ch. 26 The Special Theory of Relativity


Due Friday Mar. 16 by 10 am


1. If you were on a spaceship traveling at 0.5c away from a star, at what speed would the starlight pass you?


2. Does time dilation mean that time actually passes more slowly in moving reference frames or that it only seems to pass more slowly?


3. Do you have any questions about something you read in this chapter? Is there anything that didnít make sense? Is there any topic that you want me to emphasize or something you want me to skip because you are pretty sure youíve got it? Any comments in general about the course, the chapter or the state of the universe?
