# At what age do you learn theory of relativity?

## At what age do you learn theory of relativity?

Grade 8 is plenty old enough to learn special relativity. If they can do the pythagorean theorem and basic algebra, then that’s enough to do special relativity. If they don’t know algebra, then they can understand the basic *physics* of special relativity.

## How does relativity affect aging?

The equations of general relativity also predict that gravity similarly slows down, or dilates, time. “So if you are experiencing stronger gravitational pull, then your time is going to go slower,” said study co-author James Chin-Wen Chou of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

Why do you age slower the faster you go?

This form of time dilation is also real, and it’s because in Einstein’s theory of general relativity, gravity can bend spacetime, and therefore time itself. The closer the clock is to the source of gravitation, the slower time passes; the farther away the clock is from gravity, the faster time will pass.

Is E mc2 the theory of relativity?

E = mc2, equation in German-born physicist Albert Einstein’s theory of special relativity that expresses the fact that mass and energy are the same physical entity and can be changed into each other.

### Do you age slower in low gravity?

You’d think that might even out, but actually their velocity time dilation has a bigger effect than their gravitational time dilation, so astronauts end up aging slower than people on Earth.

### Do you age slower in a coma?

the cellular mechanism for ageing has been associated with progressive shortening of telomere length on the ends of each chromosome with each cell cycle.. in the contect of this, a coma wouldnt necessarily keep you young, but you would age just the same.

Why is Newtonian physics still taught?

Teachers are still teaching Newton’s physics because of a combination of Einstein’s physics being seen as too hard, and teachers themselves being more comfortable with the Newtonian physics they were trained in.

What is the theory of relativity?

The theory of relativity usually encompasses two interrelated theories by Albert Einstein: special relativity and general relativity. Special relativity applies to elementary particles and their interactions, describing all their physical phenomena except gravity.

#### What is Sampson’s age graded theory?

Robert J. Sampson’s and John H. Laub’s Age Graded Theory or Theory of Turning Points describe the change in the crime load of individuals as a function of biographical events. For this purpose, they use the so-called ‘Turning Points’, which can either strengthen, weaken or interrupt criminal behaviour.

#### How does general relativity apply to astronomy?

General relativity explains the law of gravitation and its relation to other forces of nature. It applies to the cosmological and astrophysical realm, including astronomy. The theory transformed theoretical physics and astronomy during the 20th century, superseding a 200-year-old theory of mechanics created primarily by Isaac Newton.

Who is the author of age graded theory?

Robert J. Sampson and John H. Laub received the 2011 Stockholm Price in Criminology for their work on Age Graded Theory. In the statement of the jury it says:
