Albert Einstein and the Theory of Relativity:
Can a human ever travel faster than the speed of light,at “warp speed”?
1. Einstein’s theories of relativitya. are a result of the contradiction between Newton’s laws of motion and Maxwell’s equations. b. proved the laws of nature are not universally applicable.c. indicated that Maxwell’s equations were in error.d. showed that the speed of light is not always a constant.e. none of the aboveAns: aLink To:Frames of ReferenceDifficulty Level: Easy2. Special relativity is applied toa. reference frames accelerating. b. reference frames that do not accelerate.c. very difficult mathematical problems.d. general cases of relativity.e. cases in which the object moves faster than the speed of light.Ans: bLink To:Frames of ReferenceDifficulty Level: Easy3. According to the theory of relativity,a. as the speed of light is approached, time slows down and approaches zero. b. as the speed of light is approached, time speeds up and approaches infinity.c. as the speed of light is approached, distance shrinks and approaches zero.d. a & ce. none of the aboveAns: dLink To:Special RelativityDifficulty Level: Easy108
