### Relativistic transformation of electrical current [closed]

If, in frame $S$, we have an electrically neutral wire with some current $I$, modelled as positive charges moving in $x$ direction and negative charges moving in $-x$ direction, then how would one ...

### The path that a light beam takes in empty space

First excuse me if this question is very simple for you but for me and for my friend is not. Recently we were discussing what path a light beam will follow in a box moving at a constant velocity in ...

### Yukawa Potential in non-relativistic limit

In Peskin's book "An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory", on page 121 (section 4.7) , it tries to recover the Yukawa Potential in the nonrelativistic limit, but there's a simplification that I don't ...

### Local Phase Transformation of the Dirac equation

The Dirac Equation ("free Dirac") is a relativistic Equation of Motion (EoM) for a free ($V=0$) Spin $1/2$ particle (like an electron). The free Dirac equation is invariant under global phase ...

### Working out Length Contraction

I'm having trouble reconciling the quantitative and conceptual aspects of length contraction. This example is taken out of a book: Say a particle is moving toward us at 0.99c, relative to us. If at ...
