Problem 35RQ

Do the relativity equations for time, length, and momentum hold true for everyday speeds? Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

According to theory of relativity,time dilation is difference of elapsed time of two events as measured by observers either moving related each other or differently situated from masses. t = t/ 1 v /c 2 Here if v << c,then t= t At low speed compared to speed of light this reduces the classical time.as v approaches c, approaches to infinity. Length contraction is the phenomenon of a decrease in length of an object as measured by an observer who is travelling at any non-zero velocity relative to the object. L = L / 1 v /c 2 0 The length of object is half of the original object.then 1 v /c = 0.5 ,so its relativistic momentum is twice the classical momentum. The relativistic momentum is given by p = mv = mv/ 1 v /c 2 2 At low speeds compared to speed of light. This reduces classical momentum p = mv. As v approaches c, approaches infinity.because of this reason no upper limit to electron.
