### Is there a situation in which two photons/particles violate Lorentz transformation?

What you are not taking into account is the relativisic velocity addition. When calculating the gamma factor we are calculating it for a single reference frame moving relative to our reference frame. ...

### Is there a situation in which two photons/particles violate Lorentz transformation?

The frequency of the photon changes with your relative velocity. that's because time slows down at relativistic speed. But you know that. It is the frequency that experiences the Lorentz shift, not ...

### Is there a situation in which two photons/particles violate Lorentz transformation?

What you did was introduce a third inertial frame in which the relative velocity between the two particles is indeed higher than $c$. This does not violate Special Relativity. If you go in the ...

### An electromagnetic twist on Ehrenfest's paradox

First, lets examine the linear analogue without the complication of circular motion. Imagine we two very long rods with the charges evenly distributed such that the combined charge of the two rods is ...

### Question on special relativity

Using $\Delta$anything is going to increase confusion. Relativity is about measuring the same events in different coordinates. So for light propagating a distance $L$, you have 2 events: Emission (Tx):...

### Question on special relativity

With some algebra, we can see eq. 1 and 2 are equivalent, \begin{align} &c\Delta t - \sqrt{(\Delta x)^2+(\Delta y)^2+(\Delta z)^2} = 0 \;\;\;\; (1) \\ \Rightarrow\;\;\; &c\Delta t = \sqrt{(\...
