Capstone Papers-Einstein’s Theory of relativity
Identify the physics principles contained within the following scenario.
Explain how these principals connect to Einstein’s theory of relativity or in modern applications in physics. For Example Only:
If you use a GPS option on your car or a mobile device, you are using Einstein’s theory of relativity. Finally, provide an original example from your own experience, then compare and contrast your scenario to the provided example below.
Mandy took a trip to Rome, Italy. She gazed out over the open ocean 20,000 feet below as her airplane began its descent to her final destination of Rome. It had been a long flight from New York to Rome, but she as she stretched, and her bones creaked as though she was old, she knew that in fact, she was a tiny bit younger than her compatriots back home, thanks to traveling at hundreds of miles per hour. In fact, time for her was running slowly compared to her friends in New York for two reasons: the speed at which she had traveled and the height of the airplane above the Earth. Neither, though, were noticeable.
How the paper needs to be formatted:
Opening paragraph should discuss a brief summary of Einstein’s theory of relativity and note that in this paper you will be using the scenario given to explain how modern-day principles connect to his theory of relativity.
The Body of the paper needs to clearly state what specific items in the scenario relate to the theory of relativity and detail them with references in parenthesis (if using the module readings just put MOD in parenthesis).
The conclusion needs to be your own real-life comparison and not the example comparison already used in the scenario example. How does Einstein’s theory of relativity apply to your daily life? What is one example? Explain.
