Question 2

page 1 of 6

ulobal Positioning System (uPS) is a navigation technology which uses

signal fiom satellites to ueteimine the position of an object (foi example an

aiiplane). Bowevei, uue to the satellites high speeu movement in oibit, theie

shoulu be a special ielativistic coiiection, anu uue to theii high altituue, theie

shoulu be a geneial ielativistic coiiection. Both coiiections seem to be small but

aie veiy impoitant foi piecise measuiement of position. We will exploie both

coiiections in this pioblem.

Fiist we will investigate the special ielativistic effect on an acceleiateu

paiticle. We consiuei two types of fiame, the fiist one is the "&.+ 4"*'& (calleu !

oi Eaith's fiame), wheie the paiticle is at iest initially. The othei is the 5"#5&"

4"*'& (calleu !! ), a fiame that instantaneously moves togethei with the

acceleiateu paiticle. Note that this is not an acceleiateu fiame, it is a constant

velocity fiame that at a paiticulai moment has the same velocity with the

acceleiateu paiticle. At that shoit moment, the time iate expeiienceu by the

paiticle is the .*'& as the piopei fiame's time iate. 0f couise this piopei fiame

is only goou foi an infinitesimally shoit time, anu then we neeu to uefine a new

piopei fiame afteiwaiu. At the beginning we synchionize the paiticle's clock

with the clock in the iest fiame by setting them to zeio, ! ! ! ! ! (# is the time in

the iest fiame, anu ! is the time shown by paiticle's clock).

By applying &67,-*%&1/& 5",1/,5%&, we can obtain geneial ielativistic

effects fiom special ielavistic iesults which uoes not involve complicateu metiic

tensoi calculations. By combining the special anu geneial ielativistic effects, we

can calculate the coiiections neeueu foi a uPS (global positioning system)

satellite to pioviue accuiate positioning.

Some mathematics foimulas that might be useful
