(According to the special

**theory of relativity**, energy has inertia and thus energyflux is associated with momentum.) Considering a plane wave we have shown

that E, H and k are mutually orthogonal. Hence, the Poynting vector as well as the

any difficulty, there are exceptional situations like the case of hyperbolic motion

x2 = b2+ c2/2 (which is the case of uniform acceleration according to the special

**theory of relativity**) where the apparent dependence on R is quite different.Page 299

If we put k infinity, the transformations reduce to Galilean form. With the second

postulate of special

**relativity**the velocity of light is an invariant. Hence in thetransormation formulae of special

**relativity**, k is to be identified with c, the velocityof ...
