How Relativity Is Misunderstood
Lecture no. 17 from the course: Understanding the Misconceptions of Science
Taught by Professor Don Lincoln | 33 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
At its core, relativity is about something very simple: how two people in relative motion see the world differently. In the first of two lectures on misunderstandings about relativity, explore the Lorentz transforms, then journey through a seeming paradox that disappears once you use the Lorentz transforms properly.
