|Go to:||http://magen.co.uk/calculator.html (opens a new window)|
The calculator uses an interactive geometric contstruction to solve the addition of velocities, time dilation, and other special relativity problems. This has the educational benefit of visually displaying the underlying magic of the Lorenz transforms.
Users with slow modems will require some patience, as the calculator will take at least 5 minutes to load. When the net is busy the download time can be longer.
