By "inertial" I mean that the system is at rest or moving with constant velocity.1
Imagine, for example, that you have loaded a billiard table onto a railroad car,
and the train is going at constant speed down a smooth straight track. The game
S clocks Figure 12.18 Finally, suppose S focuses his attention on a single clock
in the S frame (say, the one at x = a), and watches it over some interval At. How
much time elapses on the moving clock? Because x is fixed, (iv') gives At = yAi, ...
(12.86) But what if we examine this same capacitor from system S, moving to the
right at speed vq (Fig. 12.35b)? In this system the plates are moving to the left, but
the field still takes the form E = -y; (12.87) the only difference is the value of the ...
