Unit 10
Special Theory of Relativity
1. Look at the list of theories and say which of them were the product of
classical physics (physics as it was known at the end of the nineteenth
century) and which ones can be referred to modern physics (the new
physics that grew out of the great revolution at the turn of the twentieth
century):
a) Newtonian mechanics;
b) The theory of relativity;
c) Kinetic theory;
d) Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetism;
e) Quantum theory.
2. What is the significance of the revolutionary theories of the twentieth
century?
3. Read the following summary and fill in the gaps with the given words.
Then read the text to see if you were right.
