The concept of time-3

www.google.co.inShrinkage of time:-
In previous post, i mentioned about this phenomena. Let discuss it. Will try to find, how your watch goes behind to some given conditions. Behind not 'slow', the word slow means moving ahead at a minimal speed.Here it means going behind,but not in terms of length in terms of time. So using the word slow might not be appropriate.

Imagine to your limit to some colossal rather astronomic figures.Did?Thanks,now let's start ,though it needs some calculations,but if i do that most of my readers may get bored with it,even annoyed also.So allow me to put the results only. Suppose you're riding an Einstein train along an endless railway track,at a speed of 240,000km/sec,setting your wrist watch(that designer one) with the clock of the boarding station.your destination? Let 864000,000km. away.The clock of that station shows same time with the boarding one. How much time it will take to reach the destination, relative to the station clock? Simple 864,000,000/240,000= 1hour= 60 minutes.Remember not relative to your wrist watch.Why? Because it will differ,no i am not puzzling you. Come see how?

Here i have to introduce another character an observer,who is watching you travelling from a stationery platform. Now,travelling at that astronomical speed you're requested to lit an electric torch placed on the floor of that train,focusing to the ceiling of that train,where a mirror is fitted. What will be the path of the focused beam, to you? Vertically up to the mirror,reflected and vertically down to the source, the torch. Yes the mirror assumed to be a plain one,not concave or convex. For the observer standing motionless compared to the platform is completely different. Here i will request you again, forget our every day standards,experiences. Stay in that astronomic imaginary state of standards.For the observer the time it takes the beam to travel from the source to mirror, the mirrors shifts towards the motion of the train:again the time it takes from mirror back to the source,the source(torch) shifts the same distance i.e. the distance the beam traveled from source to the shifted mirror(an angular distance).Remember light travels @300,000km/sec. What we derive from here? Is for the observer the path of that torch beam forms an isosceles triangle.What was your's? A vertical straight line. So your path is smaller than the observer.What you say? Am i correct? In other words you may say the time interval at the station is greater than your's on board. If i take the time interval of the beam from source to mirror and back to source as 10(ten) minutes,its easy to calculate the height of the train,will be an astronomical figure, no matter with that kind of speed.Now from laws of triangles you can easily calculate the relation of the time interval in between you and the observer.I am avoiding all those calculations here.The results of the calculation shows,what? An unbelievable one. That while 10(ten) minutes has passed in the station clock,only 6(six) minutes has passed in your clock.Why?As your beam path is lesser than that of the observer.So the ratio is 6:10 or 6/10.
Now you can easily find out what it will be for an one hour journey? 60 minutes (one hour) for the station clocks and 60x6/10= 36 minutes for your watch i.e. 24 minutes behind the station clock or the time lag is 24 minutes.Amazing isn't it? The greater the speed of the train the bigger the time lag. If we continue to accelerate the speed of the train up to the 0.9999 part of the light speed(i.e.3000,000km/sec),only one minute will pass in your watch against 60 minutes of the station clock.............. ridiculous? boring?pardon but bear with me up to the next post

  1. i see the relationships you my brother and me can i burrow your mirror and see if it fits on my blog is all relative you know. nice post check mine tomorrow.

  2. Nirupam - seriously you and Roy are not good for me : ( I feel foolish after reading you guys .... But to the limit of my understanding - this is so very interesting! THat's why maybe the almighty once said "main samay hoon" - no one else can be that powerful : )

  3. @Roy,really great to have you as elder brother. Do you know what Bengalis call to their elder brother? They respectfully call as 'DADA'.From now it's my right to call you 'DADA'(the big brother).Take my mirror for forever, it will work better under your control. Thanks a lot DADA.

  4. @Kirti,beg your pardon unconditionally ,lol.but the good is i am finding some inclination in you,about 'samay' please do write something on it in your way of liking. I am dam sure that will be a nice one through your pen.
    Thanks

  5. Nirupan, i have add a clock like the one you have here. take and load my blog in one window, and yours in another. note that both clocks are sync to the world clock, when look at the minutes hand they should agree. note also that the information is traveling to you at 99.5% of th speed of light . would care to explain?

  6. i put both clocks on my blog the a 30 minute time differences take a look

  7. will surely do Nirupam - and that one will be dedicated to you : )

  8. @Fine Roy(clocks).99.5% matter shall try to explain in next post.

    @Kirti I am honored.

  13. Jorie,I am greatly honored,readers like you are fuels to my thinking engine.No dear i am not a professor,come again.
    Thanks

  14. Royal, as an engineer, you must be left-brained. Am I right on this? I read this post and felt overwhelmingly lost.
    But I followed you anyway, as I probably need more mental excercise (as you have provided here:)

  15. Debra,lolol what about my right brain,give some info if you know about this sub.But dear I love the way you write,come again.
    Thanks
