# Relativistic Mechanics

Relativistic mechanics refers to mechanics studied in special and general relativity. It provides a non-quantum mechanical description of a system of particles or fluid. The foundations of relativistic mechanics are the general questions of special relativity and general relativity.

Relativistic mechanics can be divided into kinematics; the description of motion, and dynamics; a full description by considering energies. However, in what appears to be moving and what is at rest, is in terms by static in classical mechanics. This depends on the relative motion of observers who measure in frames of reference. Relativistic mechanics depends on three dimensional vector calculus to explain basic principals.

### Relativistic Mechanics for Particle Accelerator

The operator of a linear particle accelerator tells a tour group that it is used to give protons an energy of 600MeV. a) this 600MeV must refer to the protons total, kinetic, or rest energy? Why? b) what are the values of these three proton energies? c) what is the protons speed? d) what is the protons moment

### Relativity: Coordinate Transformations

Prolate sheroidal coordinates can be used to simplify the Kepler problem in celestial mechanics. They are related to the usual Cartesian coordinates of Euclidean three-space by: x=sinh(nu)sin(theta)cos(pheta) y=sinh(nu)sin(theta)sin(pheta) z=cosh(nu)cos(pheta) In the plane y=0, what is the coordinate transformation matrix

### elements with same volumes and densities but different masses

If it possible for two different elements to have the same volumes and densities but different masses? Explain please.

### Use MatLab for plotting Newtonian and relativistic mechanics quantities

In math lab, plot how the graph of FORCE, MOMENTUM ENERGY, ACCELERATION and MASS in Newtonian physics will look compared to relativity physics( or at high velocity (v=c). Please show detailed diagram.

### What minimum barrier thickness is there no reflection?

Suppose electrons with E=13.0 eV approach a potential barrier of height 6.0 eV. For what minimum barrier thickness is there no reflection? For what minimum barrier thickness is the reflection a maximum?

### Time Dilation

Does time dilation mean that time actually passes more slowly in a moving inertial reference frame, or that it seems to move slower? Would a mechanical clock be affected by time dilation? If you are traveling away from Earth at 0.7c does your heart rate slow down?
