PHY102 Recap last lecture ± All inertial frames equivalent for discovering/using laws of physics ² Consequence – speed of light is SAME measured from any inertial frame ± For this to be true – rate of passage of time must depend on inertial frame ± All inertial observers agree on the distance squared in spacetime between 2 events ( Δ x) 2 –c 2 ( Δ t) 2 = Δ s 2

Time dilation ± Consider frame moving at speed v relative to us and 2 events which occur at same place in that frame – Δ X=0 ± From our frame Δ x=v Δ t ± Distance 2 = -c 2 ( Δ T) 2 = ( Δ x) 2 –c 2 ( Δ t) 2 = v 2 ( Δ t) 2 -c 2
