In Galilean relativity

under Galilean transformations the infinitesimal elements of distance and time

are separately invariant . Thus ds2 = dx2 + dy2 + dz2 , ( 11.59 ) dt2 = dt'2 = ds'2 ...

In Galilean relativity

**space**and time coordinates are unconnected . Consequentlyunder Galilean transformations the infinitesimal elements of distance and time

are separately invariant . Thus ds2 = dx2 + dy2 + dz2 , ( 11.59 ) dt2 = dt'2 = ds'2 ...
