Conceptual Physics Alive: Special Relativity 2 includes a digital video and questions set with answers.

Observe Paul Hewitt teach in a classroom with real students, using engaging demonstrations and artwork. In this video, length, momentum, mass, and Einstein's famous equation E=mc² are discussed and supported with several fanciful examples. Speculations about going faster than the speed of light are entertained. Segment length: 38 minutes

Special Relativity Includes:

  • Hewitt begins with reference to the film, "Relativistic Time Dilation" from the previous lecture.
  • Chalkboard exhibition of the time dilation equation with numerical examples.
  • Hewitt's speculates about "century hopping."
  • Scenario of whirling around in a high-speed centrifuge to experience time dilation.
  • Speculation of what might occur if one could travel faster than the speed of light. The consequences of a faster-than-light jump from one planet to another are entertained.
  • Seeing in the past at all times.
  • Speculations about what we might see in a mirror in space 1000 light-years away. We see ourselves when? [2000 years ago.]
  • Momentum and mass increase with speed.
  • All four relativity equations are displayed with fanfare on the chalkboard.
  • Length contraction with speed, in terms of the linear accelerator at Stanford University.
  • Discussion of space travel in terms of the concepts of relativity.
