Lecture 15 -  Four-Vector in Relativity

Lecture 15 - Four-Vector in Relativity

This video was recorded at YALE PHYS 200 - Fundamentals of Physics with Professor Ramamurti Shankar. The discussion of four-vector in relativity continues but this time the focus is on the energy-momentum of a particle. The invariance of the energy-momentum four-vector is due to the fact that rest mass of a particle is invariant under coordinate transformations.
