Unformatted text preview: 258 Chapt. 34 Maxwells Equations, Electromagnetic Radiation and Special Relativity 14. Lets play Jeopardy ! For $100, the answer is: (1) The laws of physics are the same (i.e., have the same formulae) in all inertial frames of reference. (2) The vacuum light speed is the same for all inertial-frame observers. What are , Alex? a) the laws of classical electrodynamics b) the principles of quantum mechanics c) Euclids axioms of geometry d) contradictory hypotheses e) the two postulates of Einsteins special relativity 034 qmult 00340 1 1 5 easy memory: vacuum light speed Extra keywords: physci KB-213-15 15. The vacuum light speed relative to inertial frames depends on: a) frequency. b) wavelength. c) distance traveled. d) amplitude. e) nothing: it is a universal constant. 034 qmult 00350 1 2 4 moderate memory: Newtons laws, Maxwells equations Extra keywords: Lorentz invariance 16. Which turned out to be more correct in relativistic physics: Newtons laws or Maxwells16....
