change of observer

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Let A and B be observers in two different places. The same event will be observed differently by A and B. Knowing one observation and the relative position of A and B allows the calculation of what the other observer would see in classical mechanics, which requires time and distance to be independent of the choice of observer.
