Six Not-So-Easy Pieces: Einstein’s Relativity, Symmetry, and Space-Time by Richard Feynman

Some American qualities do, it seems, run deep. The difference between spacetime, and space and the interval provides interesting sense of reality.

Feb 20, Rama rated it it was amazing Shelves: Published April 6th by Basic Books first published I learned that there are somethings I cannot grasp and sometimes these things are not understandable by most people. What a phenomenal exposition of the mysteries of science.

The first innovation appears to be the concept of relativistic mass. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The description of the object also depends upon the frame of reference observer.

Feynman is as enigmatic as usual and his descriptions are vivid and inspiring. The only thing we might suggest is something like this: I am one of them desccargar it comes to this book.

This book is aimed at teaching Special Relativity to students who have high school algebra thus can handle a co-ordinate transform and Newtonian mechanics. Jul 19, Dan Cohen rated it really liked it Shelves: The rate of time flow in a gravitational field increases, so we should send the projectile as high as possible. A basic understanding of calculus is important, even if it was acquired some years ago and partially forgotten, to comprehend the various mathematical explanations that go along with any serious study of physics.

I found this to be a profound and exiting way of understanding how things truly work, for example, why does tea cool down when we blow on it? This gate is very elaborate, with lots of gables and beautiful carving and lots of columns and dragon heads and princes carved into the pillars, and so on. Very appropriate title, especially if one has not read complete lecture series. Some of them are referenced below, but is great to read Richard Feynamn, because he did not like scientific ideas without a good physical foundation, and his approach is strikingly original.


And, to be honest, I do not see much value in the first two chapters of the book, which are not much more than a very cursory introduction to mathematical objects that anybody should have learned in high school anyway apart maybe from the concept of “symmetry” – maybe this space could have been used more efficiently by getting into some more detail in other areas.

Why is nature so nearly symmetrical?

Feynman is also quite a showman. Part of his original “Lectures on Physics,” written and delivered for an audience of undergraduate college students, this shorter work covers some of the most important ideas and discoveries of modern physics including Einstein’s special theory of relativity, fqciles time, and gravitational equivalence.

It also has some unique thought experiments for developing an facilse regarding relativity. There is a gate in Japan, a gate in Neiko, which is sometimes called by the Japanese the most beautiful gate in all Japan; it was built in a time when there was great influence from Chinese art.

Richard Feynman was a brilliant, creative teacher. I’m ordering the paperback so I can go through it again. I can faclies how experiment can find the mass of an electron, for example.

I wish there were more teachers like him today. Nov 13, Rajendra Dave rated it really liked it.

My Algebra, Trigonometry, and Vector Analysis skills are very rusty. He has a keen sense for the dramatic, and will unveil a physical principle like a magician pulling a dove from a hat. However, having said that, I would still recommend this book even to a more intermediate level reader, as the way how Feynman manages to get to the core of things with lucid rigor, and simplicity, and how he manages to holistically connect all the different aspects of the physics he is explaining, is something magic and a great pleasure to experience.


I did my best, and Feynman is always a joy to read, but I probably won’t remember much about these topics tomorrow. But, simple as Feynman’s language is, these concepts are hard for even a smart person to get his or her head around. Richard Phillips Feynman was an American physicist known for the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as work in particle physics he proposed the parton model.

He gives you the general principle, and then walks you through an example.

OK, this was written inand maybe before that students were simply told to memorize the Lorentz transformation matrix. Essential reading for relativity enthusiasts of the weekend variety, I might add- the more academic ones might be better served by lectures given by the wild-haired maestro himself. Thus an event “right now” can not be defined, it is a mystery, because we are not affected by it right now, but can be affected later after eight minutes.

The “now” is an idea or a concept of our mind, it is not physically definable at the moment, and we have to wait to observe it separated by distance in light time. However, due to the subject of this book, it does demand a certain aptitude and effort from the reader it is not-so-easy as the name honestly suggests. This is beautifully illustrated in this little volume. I found it interesting that the curvature of a sphere is the same as for a disk with a temperature that gradually increases out from the centre, which causes anything on it to expand accordingly.
