Relativity of Simultaneity


With Phillip Lazzar, Enthusiast

Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity shows how the time separation between events is reference frame dependent. In other words, if two events are measured to be simultaneous from one reference frame, they will not be simultaneous from any other reference frame in line with the two events. This is a consequence of there being a maximum relative speed, also known as the speed of light. This will be explained simply so that you can understand it. At least that is the goal.
