Answer this question

  • Why is the theory of relativity called that?


Answer #1 | 27/12 2009 23:01
Because the theory was inspired by the way a family tree is structured, with one stem reaching to many branches over time (i.e: relatives, relativity)
Answer #2 | 27/12 2009 23:13
Because the theory describes how various concrete physical measurements — length, distance, time, even simultaneity of events — will change depending on how fast you are moving when you measure them. This change is scarcely distinguishable at low speeds, but the difference can be quite profound at speeds that approach the speed of light.
