A Ballistic Path to Relativistic Mechanics
|Title||A Ballistic Path to Relativistic Mechanics|
|Author(s)||Sadanand S Savarkar|
Gulliveresque relativistic mechanics is constructed through the analysis of some simple ballistic experiments with an ideal spring-gun. The variation of mass with velocity, as well as the inertia of energy, follows in the context of Newton's law of the equality and opposition of action and reaction.
