Let’s talk about dilation we’ve seen what happened in March 2020 for almost 20 years, and we’ve recently experienced how Christmas fell in August. This is almost relativity for you! What Einstein’s theory explains is that one’s time begins to change. We don’t seem to feel it in everyday life, but in reality, the faster you go the slower your time goes for you. This is known as expansion during velocity. And it uses a very effective calculator from Omni.
The dilution formula for velocity is not one of the scariest we can find in physics, but it still requires a little explanation of the detail. What we are calculating is that a time interval (symbolized by the original Greek letter delta and the letter T) slows down to a certain speed (symbol v). And this is because the speed of light is limited. The simple way to demonstrate this simple way does not require much more than school mathematics: Pythagoras theorem.
As shown in the image above, you start with two mirrors and a light bounce between them. It’s like a clock, and your time interval (like a second or a minute) takes light from one time to another mirror and then back. But if this clock (your two mirrors) continues to run, the light will go a long way back and forth. So your new time interval (“Delta Tea Prime”) is much longer than the original. You can see how it forms two great angled triangles. D, D, can be expressed through the Pythagorean Theorem with the speed of time and the interval of time. So the combination of both sides gives you a neat little formula from the calculator.
These are all more or less straightforward, but it’s a bit difficult to wrap your head around. Let’s use our mirror clock. You have one and I got the other. You’re still there, and I’m moving. You will notice that my watch has slowed down. But the killer is from my point of view; your clock is ticking slowly because I (being self-sufficient) can measure myself as stable and as the rest of the universe with you.
This idea, known as remuneration, seems a bit off, doesn’t it? Apparently, we see this person moving with a slow clock! However, it is easier to imagine the situation from a point of view. If you see a distant person, they will appear smaller. But to them, these are normal sizes and you are remotely small.
This property led to the most famous problem related to the expansion of time: the dual paradox. It starts with two twins, one getting a very fast spaceship and the other being on Earth. When the first twins came back it was seen that they had aged less than their age.
How is it possible if time is interconnected? Yes, due to its acceleration it happened due to other types of time scattering, which are not of each other, and it is enough to make a dramatic difference. This also happens in the case of the gravitational system. Gravity creates the effect of timing. Researchers have calculated that because of this effect, the core of our planet is about two and a half years younger than its surface.
