Lorentz Transformation

Derivation of Lorentz transformation equations using orthogonal transformations Let us consider two uniformly moving frames of reference where origins coincides at $t=0$. let the source of light is fixed at unprimed frame of reference and emits a pulse of light. The observer fixed in the unprimed frame of reference will observe a spherical wave-front propagating with the speed of light $c$ , whose equation can … Continue reading Lorentz Transformation »
