Abstract

Mermin [Am. J. Phys. 51, 1130–1131 (1983)] derived the relativistic addition of the parallel

components of velocity using the constancy of the speed of light. In this note, the derivation is

extended to the perpendicular components of velocity.

a photon. On its way back to the right side. the parallel component of the photon’s velocity is v. The invariance of r implies w⊥ w′ √ = √ ⊥ c2 − v 2 c2 − v ′2 s ′ 1 − v ′2 /c2 ⇒ w⊥ = w⊥ . the perpendicular component of the velocity according to the person standing on the ground is. the speed of the train. and a massive particle. are both projected from one side the train. v and v ′ . Here. (3) 1 + vV /c2 Substituting this into Eq. by Pythagoras’ theorem. As in Ref. Since the speed of the photon is constant at c in any frame. (1) c2 − v 2 Consider two cases for the speed of the train. say the right side. √ c2 − v 2 . To a person standing on the ground. At a certain instant. (2) gives the desired result p ′ 1 − V 2 /c2 w⊥ = w⊥ . in the direction perpendicular (according to someone standing on the train) to the direction of motion of the train. Since the place on the train where the photon and the massive particle meet is frame- independent. it encounters the massive particle at some point. the ratio r of the perpendicular components of the velocity of the massive particle. the invariant ratio is w⊥ r=√ . When the photon reaches the left side of the train. we consider a train moving on a long straight track at constant speed v. which has speed c. without resorting to Lorentz transformations. I show that his derivation can be extended to the addition of the perpendicular components of the velocity. 1. w⊥ . (2) 1 − v 2 /c2 All that is left to do is to express v ′ in terms of the velocity difference V between v ′ and v using the parallel velocity addition rule1 v+V v′ = . (4) 1 + vV /c2 2 . and that of the photon must be an invariant. Mermin1 gave a succinct elementary derivation of the relativistic addition the parallel component of the velocity using the constancy of the speed of light. which has speed less than c. it is immediately reflected back. Therefore.
