1.1 Describe what is meant by a frame of reference
A frame of reference is a co-ordinate system covered in clocks that an
observer uses to measure the time and positive of an event. It is covered in
clocks so we can measure the time that an even took place…

1.2 Describe what is meant by a Galilean
transformation

Galilean Transformation are equations that translate measurements made in One
frame of reference to another frame of reference without taking into account the
theory of relativity

1.3 Solve problems involving relative velocities using the Galilean transformation
equations
A train travels through a station at a constant velocity of s. One observer sits on
the train and another sits on the platform. As they pass each other, they stop
their stopwatches and take measurements of a passenger…

2.1 Describe what is meant by an inertial frame of reference
An inertial frame of reference is a frame of reference in Which Newtons first law
of motion applies: an object moves at a constant velocity unless acted on by an
external force. All inertial frames are in a state…

2.2 State the two postulates of the special theory of relativity
The law of physics are the same in all inertial frames of reference
The speed of light in a vacuum is the same as measured by all inertial observers

Simultaneity is thu
s relative
From Sheldon's

2.3 Discuss the concept of simultaneity
Events at two different points in space that are simultaneious in one frame of
reference are not simultaneous in all frames of reference. Lets consider the
following experiment. Suppose Sheldon is carrying a double sabre laser
horizontally,…

3.1 Describe the concept of a light clock
A light clock is made from two parallel mirrors and a photon of light. Since the
mirrors are parallel, the photon is reflected between the mirrors. This creates a
tick' and 'tock' motion.
