Example text

We study the strong force extensively in this book, learning that neutrons and protons are composed of quarks, and that the part of the strong force acting between quarks has the unusual name of color force. Physicists strive to combine forces into more fundamental ones. Centuries ago the forces responsible for friction, contact, and tension were all believed to be different. Today we know they are all part of the electroweak force. Two hundred years ago scientists thought the electrical and magnetic forces were independent, but after a series of experiments, physicists slowly began to see their connection.

3 m thick. This stone was placed on a wooden float that rested on mercury inside the annular piece shown underneath the stone. The entire apparatus rested on a brick pier. (b) The incoming light is focused by the lens and is both transmitted and reflected by the partly silvered mirror. The adjustable mirror allows fine adjustments in the interference fringes. The stone was rotated slowly and uniformly on the mercury to look for the interference effects of the ether.

We conclude that Two events that are simultaneous in one reference frame (K) are not necessarily simultaneous in another reference frame (K œ) moving with respect to the first frame. Synchronization of clocks Lorentz transformation equations We must be careful when comparing the same event in two systems moving with respect to one another. Time comparison can be accomplished by sending light signals from one observer to another, but this information can travel only as fast as the finite speed of light.
