What is Relativity?
Time! Wouldn’t you like more of it in a day?
Think of all the things that you could get done. Or would you? Do you utilize your time wisely and good use of it.
We all wish we had more time with loved ones who pass away, or having that sunny day walk in the park. If you ever worked and had the weekend off, didn’t you want more time to enjoy?
When you work for yourself, you need to have time management on your side. You need to learn to schedule your day, so the things you want to get done, DO.
Today I had the Idea to write about time and space. In other words, “Relativity”; this was inspired by my friend Linda Hill from her Friday prompt challenge.
Finding out the study of relativity is quite fascinating.
I found a few studies on what Albert Einstein came up with. So today here is a quick science lesson and a few links to let you read more:
Albert Einstein was famous for many things, but his greatest thing that came out of his brain is the theory of relativity. It forever changed our understanding of space and time.
What is relativity? Succinctly put, it is the notion that the laws of physics are the same everywhere. We here on Earth obey the same laws of light and gravity as someone in a far off corner of the universe.
The universality of physics means that history is provincial. Different viewers will see the timing and spacing of events differently. What for us is a million years may just be a blink of an eye for someone flying a high-speed rocket or falling into a black hole.
This can be categorized into two pieces:
Special relativity came first and is based on the speed of light being constant for everyone. That may seem simple enough, but it has far-reaching consequences.
Einstein came to this conclusion in 1905 after experimental evidence showed that the speed of light didn’t change as the Earth swung around the Sun.
There were contradictory versions that became apparent because of the rulers and clocks — the things that mark time and space — are not the same for different observers. If the speed of light is to be held constant as Einstein said, then time and space cannot be absolute; they must be subjective.
Einstein wasn’t done upsetting our understanding of time and space. He went on to generalize his theory by including acceleration and found that this distorted……
