degrees of freedom mechanics with examples

Degree of freedom Definition: – The minimum number of independent variables or coordinates required for specifying the position of a dynamical system consisting of one or more particle is called Degree of freedom. For the $N$ number of particles moving freely in $d$ dimensional space degrees of freedom is represented by the following equation. $f=Nd$ Where $N$ is the number of particles and $d$ denote … Continue reading degrees of freedom mechanics with examples »

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 »
