hoice: The relativity of space and time is not the essential thing.

“Unfortunate” Relativity

The principle of relativity was first stated by Newton.

R. Feynman Feynman Lectures, vol.~I, p.~15-1.

Relativity Principle(earliest statement)

The motions of bodies included in a given space are the same among themselves, whether that space is at rest, or moves uniformly forward in a straight line without any circular motion.

Sir Issac Newton

Principia, Corollary V.

Relativity Principle(modern statement)

Einstein, 1905

Page 15: Lecture One. Introduction “Unfortunate” Relativity

The characteristic postulateof

Special Relativityis

The Principle of the Constancy of the Speed of Light

(rather than the Principle of Relativity).

Page 16: Lecture One. Introduction “Unfortunate” Relativity

“Thus the special theory of relativity does not depart from classical mechanics through the postulate of relativity, but through the postulate of the constancy of the velocity of light in vacuo.”

A. Einstein (1916)

Page 17: Lecture One. Introduction “Unfortunate” Relativity

“Unfortunate” Relativity• 相對性原理( Principle of Relativity )並非相對論所特有

• 從牛頓以來的古典物理都共許相對性原理

• 時空的相對性並非核心關鍵 essential

• 不遷性( invariance )才是核心關鍵

Page 18: Lecture One. Introduction “Unfortunate” Relativity

The constancy of the speed of light is essential in Special Relativity.

• Cesium is the best choice of atom for such a measurement because all of its 55 electrons but the outermost are confined to orbits in stable shells of electromagnetic force.

• Thus, the outermost electron is not disturbed much by the others.

Page 29: Lecture One. Introduction “Unfortunate” Relativity

• The cesium atoms are kept in a very good vacuum of about 10 trillionths of an atmosphere so that the cesium atoms are little affected by other particles.

• All this means that they radiate in a narrow spectral line whose wavelength or frequency can be accurately determined.

Connection between Mechanics and Electromagnetism

• Why the validity of classical mechanics hinges upon the velocity of light?

• Because light plays a basic role in the measurements of space and time that underlie mechanics.

Page 41: Lecture One. Introduction “Unfortunate” Relativity

By critically examining the procedures used to measure length and time interval, Einstein developed the Special Theory of Relativity.
