Question

Which statement is correct?

a) Galilean transformations are correct at any relative speed, but Lorentz transformations are only approximately correct for relative speeds that are small compared to the speed of light.

b) Galilean transformations are only approximately correct for relative speeds that are small compared to the speed of light, and Lorentz transformations are only approximately correct for relative speeds near the speed of light.

## Answers ( )

Answer:the answer is (b)Explanation:from the options considered above, option (b) is the right answer i.e.

Galilean transformations are only approximately correct for relative speeds that are small compared to the speed of light, and Lorentz transformations are only approximately correct for relative speeds near the speed of light.

Why?That is because Galilean transformations only work for speed is far much smaller than the speed of light.

Also Lorentz transformation(s) tends to be valid for any value of particle

This tells us that it is valid for speed smaller as well as nearly equal to the speed of lightcheers i hope this helps!!!!!

Answer:B

Explanation:

Galilean transformation are only approximately correct,while Lorentz transformation are more exact
