Inertial frame of reference print that page

In physics , an inertial frame of reference (also inertial reference frame or inertial frame or Galilean reference frame ) is a frame of reference that describes time homogeneously and space homogeneously, isotropically , and in a time independent manner. [ 1 ] All inertial frames

Rotating reference frame print that page

A rotating frame of reference is a special case of a non-inertial reference frame that is rotating relative to an inertial reference frame . An everyday example of a rotating reference frame is the surface of the Earth . (This article considers only frames rotating about a fixed axis

Inter frame print that page


An inter frame is a frame in a video compression stream which is expressed in terms of one or more neighboring frames. The "inter" part of the term refers to the use of Inter frame prediction . This kind of prediction tries to take advantage from temporal redundancy between neighboring

Quantum reference frame print that page

A quantum reference frame is a reference frame which is treated quantum theoretically. It, like any reference frame , is a physical system which defines physical quantities, such as time , position, momentum , spin , and so on. Because it is treated within the formalism of quantum theory

Special relativity print that page


developed general relativity to apply the principle in the more general case, that is, to any frame so as to handle general coordinate transformations , and that theory includes the effects of gravity . The term is currently used more generally to refer to any case in which gravitation is

Philosophy of space and time print that page


The earliest recorded Western philosophy of time was expounded by the ancient Egyptian thinker Ptahhotep (c. 2650–2600 BCE), who said: "Do not lessen the time of following desire, for the wasting of time is an abomination to the spirit." The Vedas , the earliest texts on Indian philosophy

Introduction to special relativity print that page


electromagnetism (which predict a well-defined speed of light in vacuum) hold in any inertial frame of reference [ 2 ] rather than, as was previously believed, just in the frame of the aether. This prediction contradicted the laws of classical mechanics , which had been accepted for centuries
