Relativity for Kids

Relativity

The general theory of relativity, developed in the early 20th century, originally attempted to account for certain anomalies in the concept of relative motion. But it has developed into one of the most important basic concepts in physical science. The theory of relativity, developed primarily by German American physicist Albert Einstein, is the basis for later demonstration by physicists of the essential unity of matter and energy, of space and time, and of the forces of gravity and acceleration.

The Elegant Universe - Einstein's Relativity
Grade: 8 - 12
The lesson discusses the Newton's discovery of gravitational force, and Einstein's theory of relativity. It shows how their ideas conflicted, and Einstein's theory unified space and time, and solved problems with Newton's laws.

Einstein's Relativity : Time Dilation - Slowing Down Clocks
Grade: 8 - 12
This segment explains that everything in the universe is traveling through space-time at the speed of light - the maximum speed. If we are sitting still in space, then we are traveling through time at the maximum speed. But when we begin traveling through space, our progress through time slows down. It's a phenomenon called Time Dilation.
