Where do you find anything about a clock?

Well, the first I read of it was in a book...

Thank you. I didn't find anything in the statement

about a clock either. I even used the word search

on a text editor. The word isn't there.

It is not too surprising when you consider that

nature had to have a way to move things around

before clocks were invented. :o)

Sue...

Well, Galileo thought so, but he would have a harder time today than

he did in his lifetime. All he had to worry about back then were some

religious zealots.

Weren't clocks invented so religious zealots

wouldn't miss any prayers?

So what was Clifford Will talking about in his

book, some faked results?

He has an online paper.http://relativity.livingreviews.org/Articles/lrr-2006-3/index.html

Do you see some subject heading that might

inform us if:

<<All inertial frames are totally equivalent

for the performance of all physical experiments.

experiment which differentiates in any fundamental sense

between different inertial frames. By definition, Newton's

???

Sue...

Well, as I asked before, what about velocity?

Indeed... What about velocity ?

<< Einstein's relativity principle states that:

All inertial frames are totally equivalent

for the performance of all physical experiments.

In other words, it is impossible to perform a physical

experiment which differentiates in any fundamental sense

between different inertial frames. By definition, Newton's

laws of motion take the same form in all inertial frames.

Einstein generalized this result in his special theory of

relativity by asserting that all laws of physics take the

same form in all inertial frames. >>

Do you have a problem with that ?
