One of a set of twins born in 1980 remains on earth ; the other rides in the rocket . The rocket ship is so constructed that it has an acceleration g in its own rest frame ( this makes the occupants feel at home ) .
... c2 In the rest frame of the particle ( p ' = 0 ) the scalar product ( 12.5 ) gives the energy of the particle at rest : E ' = 2 ( 12.6 ) To determine 2 we consider the Lorentz transformation ( 12.4 ) of p , from the rest frame of ...
In the rest frame of the particle definitions ( 17.35 ) reduce to pe = 0 ( since g , = 0 identically ) and E dz ( 0 ) TW = U ( 17.36 ) fa The superscript ( 0 ) means rest frame of the particle ; U is the electrostatic self - energy ...
