Virtual Learning Lab: Special Relativity, Part 2: Math Time!

May 15, 2020

Physics seems to work well on human scales, but why does classical physics seem to break at the largest and smallest ones? This series of videos, presented by Umar Ahmed Badami (CDB 2021 and CEO of Brilliants, a tutoring organization dedicated to helping underrepresented minorities) will discuss the physics on the scale of atoms and of galaxies.

In Lesson 2, we’ll discuss spacetime diagrams, the derivation of Lorentz transformations, and investigate some cool consequences of using them both together.
