Portions of the following are from CpSurf- Hewitt's Companion Web Page for this chapter

16.1 LENGTH CONTRACTION


16.2 MOMENTUM AND INERTIA IN RELATIVITY


Conserving Momentum: The Relativistic Mass Increase
As an object approaches the speed of light, its mass increases without limit! What does this mean for the conservation of momentum? Find out by reading these lecture notes from Galileo and Einstein, a course taught by Michael Fowler of the University of Virginia.

16.3 EQUIVALENCE OF MASS AND ENERGY


E = mc2
Hear Albert Einstein declare the equivalence of matter and energy! This historical soundbite is provided by the American Institute of Physics.
Mass and Energy
Read about Einstein's Box, an amusing thought experiment on the equivalence of mass and energy. This lecture is part of the Modern Physics course taught by Michael Fowler at the University of Virginia.
Transforming Energy into Mass: Particle Creation
What are the consequences of E = mc2 for particle physics? Find out by reading these lecture notes from Michael Fowler's Modern Physics.

16.4 KINETIC ENERGY IN RELATIVITY


Relativistic Dynamics
Part of Michael Fowler's Modern Physics lecture notes, this page provides an excellent overview of relativistic dynamics, including a derivation of relativistic kinetic energy.

16.5 THE CORRESPONDENCE PRINCIPLE


Introducing the Light Cone
If a new theory is valid, it must account for the verified results of the old theory in the region where both theories apply. This requirement of logic is known as the correspondence principle. How does the theory of special relativity account for classical mechanics? Find out by reading this lesson from Rob Salgado's online relativity tutorial The Light Cone. - Look at this page!
