Lesson 1: Relativity  What is
it?
 Fermilab's Time
Dilation Challenge.
 The Basics
of Relativity (6
seconds)
 The Relativity Game  Challenge
what you know!
Note: For Fermilab's Time
Dilation Challenge and The Relativity Game, you need
Shockwave. You may painlessly Download
Shockwave here if you do not have it.
Lesson 2: Time
Dilation
 The
equation.
 Where
does that come from?
 I still don't get it!
Give me
the basketball analogy.
 So what? There's an equation.
How do
I use the equation in the game?

Examples to aid your
practice?
Example 1:
 If you were to board a craft
and travel at 0.9 c
and had a mass of 60 kg, how massive would you appear to
the earth's reference frame?
Example 2:
 You observe an element that
appears to have a mass of 1.64 x 10^{25} kg when
it travels with a velocity of 0.70 c.
What would its mass be if it were at rest?
Example 3:
 What is the element's
name?
From the Periodic table, the
element with an atomic mass of 70 amu's is
Gallium!
