Alfred Heinrich Bucherer (* 9 July 1863 in Cologne; † 16 April 1927 in Bonn) was a German physicist, who is known for his experiments on relativistic mass.
Time dilation as predicted by special relativity is often verified by means of particle lifetime experiments.
The history of special relativity consists of many theoretical results and empirical findings obtained by Albert A. Michelson, Hendrik Lorentz, Henri Poincaré and others.
The index of physics articles is split into multiple pages due to its size.
The Kaufmann–Bucherer–Neumann experiments measured the dependence of the inertial mass (or momentum) of an object on its velocity.
Mass in special relativity incorporates the general understandings from the laws of motion of special relativity along with its concept of mass–energy equivalence.
Measurements of neutrino speed have been conducted as tests of special relativity and for the determination of the mass of neutrinos.
In physics, special relativity (SR, also known as the special theory of relativity or STR) is the generally accepted and experimentally well-confirmed physical theory regarding the relationship between space and time.
The speed of light in vacuum, commonly denoted, is a universal physical constant important in many areas of physics.
The theory of relativity usually encompasses two interrelated theories by Albert Einstein: special relativity and general relativity.
Walter Kaufmann (June 5, 1871 – January 1, 1947) was a German physicist.
