Theory of Relativity in Brief

Last Updated on by

INTRODUCTION

In this article, Einstein’s Theory of Relativity will be discussed in brief.

Relativity was developed by a famous German physicist, Albert Einstein. Some contributions of Hermann Minkowski, Hendrik Lorentz and Max Planck is also there.

Theory of Relativity comes in two different ‘versions’ – ‘Special Theory of Relativity’ and ‘General Theory of Relativity’ or simply special relativity or general relativity. By name, special relativity seems to be more complex than general relativity, but actually, special relativity is much simpler than general relativity.

Special relativity is called ‘special’ because it is applicable only on objects moving with a constant speed. This is a very rare or ‘special’ case because in our universe hardly anything moves with a constant speed, almost everything accelerates in our universe.

General relativity is applicable on objects moving with a constant speed as well as accelerating objects. Acceleration is a common or ‘general’ case in our universe.  Continue Reading ?

Classical Physics in Brief

INTRODUCTION

Our current ideas of motion and rest were developed by Galileo Galilei and Sir Isaac Newton in the seventeenth and early eighteenth century.

These ideas developed by Galileo and Newton are the parts of Classical Physics or Newtonian Physics in which Newton had a very huge contribution including his laws of motion and his universal law of gravitation which will be discussed in this article.

Classical Physics is more complete in itself.

Modern Physics includes two major theories – Einstein’s theory of Relativity (or Relativistic Mechanics) and theory of quantum physics (including quantum mechanics and quantum field theory).
