Before the development of special relativity (and even afterwards, when dealing
with relative speeds small compared with the velocity of light), it was understood,
although not often explicitly stated, by all physicists that physical laws should be ...
The accuracy of the Michelson-Morley experiment was such that a relative
velocity of 10° cm/sec would have been seen (i.e., one-third of the above
estimate). No fringe shift was found. Since the original work of Michelson the
experiment has ...
We now show that the contraction of lengths in the direction of motion is a more
general phenomenon which applies to all relative motion. Consider a rod of
length Lo at rest parallel to the z' axis in the system K' of the previous section, ...

A soul crushing technical manual written by a sadist that has served as the right of passage for physics PhDs since the dawn of time. Every single one of my professors studied this book, and every ... Read full review

"Jackson E&M is about learning how to approximate reliably...the entire book, with few exceptions, is a mathematical discussion on how to solve [the same] 4 problems for different boundary conditions." Read full review
