A Ballistic Path to Relativistic Mechanics

Sadanand S. Savarkar
Year: 2009
Keywords: relativity

Gulliveresque relativistic mechanics is constructed through the analysis of some simple ballistic experiments with an ideal spring-gun. The variation of mass with velocity, as well as the inertia of energy, follows in the context of Newton\'s law of the equality and opposition of action and reaction.
