oo!  Fun stuff.  I'm off for a ski trip this weekend, but if you have any questions get them in by thursday.

Relativity in High School?  Too cool.  I only got the chance to teach that for a couple years before they eliminated the advanced classes as the population grew and they couldn't afford to tie me up teaching electives that only a few would take.  Sad   I taught quantum and everything.

skiiing so jelous Mad

relativity is fun but confuuuuuusing Rolling Eyes i'll ask if i have something on my mind


wait, what is a myon?

Never heard of myons. Are you sure?

Okay, if you want to make the teacher squirm, ask about the twin paradox (assuming this hasn't been brought up already).  

One twin takes off at close to light speed, travels to a star 20 light years away, and comes back nearly un-aged because when travelling near the speed of light time slows down.  The second twin will look about 40 years older.

But if motion is relative it will look like the earth sped away from the travelling twin, so everyone on earth should look older.  How can both be true?

The resolution is that it is not symmetrical because one twin accelerated while the other did not.  Most physics teachers will be aware of this. Then you spring the trap:  what if the acceleration is done all in 5 minutes?  Will this make 20 years of difference?  Even knowing that acceleration acts like a gravity field that makes time slow down I still have problems explaining this.  I'd be curious to know if someone else can do a good job with it.

yepp.. that's what we have been talking about for two weeks Wink the twin paradox Smile
and calculating the lorentx factor of how much longer it'll be on earth than in the spaceship Smile also about length and stuff Smile

we're deep in Einsteins postulates, the general and the special Nod

btw, i know what a myon is, just wanted to test u Wink it's a foton that for a split second has mass, so it has a mass and a time factor thing and one can calculate kgm/s (dunno the english term, bevegelsesmasse)

I should have paid better attention in physics.  Shocked  Laughing 

Good work on the Pan thing. Nod  I really like Pan. It's a bit strange, but wonderful. And it's set up somewhere north, isn't it?

Why would a photon momentarily have mass?

Oh, and I made a mistake -gravity makes things speed up, not slow down: the accelerating twin will see the rest of the universe as having a gravitational field so it speeds up. More acceleration, more speed up in time.

You get two whole weeks (or more) to talk about relativity? Sweet. Confusing though. Relativity is actually not complex, it's just so different from what we are used to that it's hard to follow.

Yes, Muons can take on mass, not photons. Good catch, Eldo.

yes, north, not as far north as where i am, but pretty far north Smile midnight sun and all


I RECOMEND THE BOOK THOUGH! IT'S REALLY GOOD WRITING AND THE MAIN CHARACTER IS REALLY RELATABLE! KNUT HAMSUN PAN

Does it count as Norcing if it's your own thread? Genuine question.

no. it doesn't. because it was originally about how to end poverty Wink and i wasn't really with u guys on that discussion



((secret, nnorcing is just dramatically changing the subject to something that pleases u, like now, we're talking about my school stuff and f´physics )))
