Field Department of Physics Chapter1_3.doc University of Florida Galilean Transformation Consider two frames of reference the O-frame (label events according to t,x,y,z) and the O'-frame (label events according to t',x',y',z') moving at a constant velocity V, with respect to each other at let the origins coincide at t= t' = 0. In the Galilean transformations the O and O' frames are related as follows: z z y y t V x x t t = = + = = z z y y Vt x x t t = = = = Velocity Transformation: z z y y x x v dt dz dt dz dt dz v v dt dy dt dy dt dy
