## Galilean transformations

We can easily prove that Newton’s equations of motion, if they hold in any coordinate system, also hold in any other coordinate system translating uniformly w.r.t. the first frame of reference. This is the Newtonian principle of relativity. Galilean transformations are a set of equations which relate the space and time coordinates of two systems which are moving at a constant velocity relative to each … Continue reading Galilean transformations »
