Reciprocity of Time Dilation
This section introduces the reciprocity of time dilation. Elapsed time of a moving clock is slower when measured by a stationary observer; and elapsed time of a stationary clock is slower when measured by a moving observer. 2020-06-26, 2265🔥, 3💬
Newton's Second Law of Motion
This section introduces Newton's Second Law of Motion - The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on the object, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object. 2018-03-21, 1203🔥, 2💬
Newton's Third Law of Motion
This section introduces Newton's Third Law of Motion - If a force is exerted by one object to another object, another force is simultaneously exerted by the second object to the first object with equal strength and opposite direction. 2017-11-28, 1664🔥, 1💬
Meter Based on Earth's Meridian
This section introduces an old definition of 'meter' which uses the Paris meridian line. A 'meter' is about one ten-millionth of the length of a quadrant of the Paris meridian. 2017-10-08, 2372🔥, 2💬
Galilean Diagram of Moving Frames
This section presents a single diagram that represents a moving frame overlaid on a stationary frame. The time axis of the moving frame is rotated towards the moving direction. 2017-09-27, 760🔥, 1💬
Meter Based on Seconds Pendulum
