Asked in Speed of Light, Speed of Sound
Why does light travel faster that sound in the air?
How do you explain how light can travel through the vacuum of space?
Asked in Physics, Isaac Newton, Scientists
An object in motion tends to in motion and travel in Objects at rest stay at rest?
Why does time slow down at the speed of light?
Everything is relative and time is also relative. Light is the fastest speed in Universe It is impossible to travel faster than the speed of light. All the creation is in motion with a certain speed. Speed is the criteria of motion. Thus the fastest motion is directly related to the fastest speed which is speed of light. At the speed of light the motion is fastest and surrounding apparently stands, as it is relatively slower than light. The time factor is the passing of object from one location to other . At almost the speed of light, all other objects moving slower appears to be deceleration or coming to a virtual halt, giving an impression of time being slowed down. If you could travel with a seed of light for one year and return to your original base you will be surprised to know that 1000 of years have passed, but you have grown old by one year only. The speed travel slows down the time and covers incredibly large distances. The faster you travel the slower the time becomes. At speeds higher then speed of light the time goes into negative, meaning that you can travel into past at higher speed of light and can chose your past regulating the light speed factor.
