Electric and magnetic field transformations Picture: Consider inertial frames

... First, what are the fields E’ and B’? By Gauss’s law, the electric field around a charged line points radially away from the line, with magnitude λ/(2πε0 r’) where r’ is the perpendicular distance from the line. ...

The special theory of relativity

... Due to the postulates of the special theory of relativity, the laws of physics are the same in all inertial frames. 1. The Maxwell equations are exact equations, because they are invariant under the Lorentz coordinate transformation. 2. The Newton’s laws of motion are invariant under the Galilean c ...

CCR 1: Classical Relativity

... An important question regarding the laws of motion, one that concerned Newton himself and one that you likely studied in first-year physics, is that of the reference frame in which they are valid. It turns out that they work correctly only in what is called an inertial reference frame, a reference f ...
