Week 16

Read: Lorentz transformations (ASGv2 Chap. 31) and Relativistic energy and Minkowski space(ASGv2 Chap. 32).

Key topics: Relativistic energy and momentum.
  1. Relativistic velocity addition (Ex. 31.2),
  2. Galactic travel (Ex. 31.6),
  3. PHY 201: Relativistic energy (Ex. 32.2)

Lab: Lab cleanup; come to lab to inventory and organize lab bins (this is graded…) We will also review for the final during the lab section.

Chap. 31 (2 videos)

Chap. 32 (4 videos)

Bonus (optional) videos on relativity and time travel
