A subset of the Introduction to Classical Physics guide - The complacency of late 19th century physicists begins to fall apart after the shocking results from the most famous failed experiment of all time -- the Michelson-Morley experiment -- fall into place. These results cause leading figures like Lorentz and Einstein to begin formulating a new special theory of relativity (Newton's equations of motion were actually not a complete description of nature!)...but don't be intimidated by Einstein's famous theories of relativity! In this simple and friendly guide, you'll have a comfortable understanding of a range of relativistic topics from the famous energy-mass equivalence to the Lorentz transformation in space-time.
