In this lesson on Einstein’s Postulates for the Theory of Special Relativity, which is part of Unit 3 Area of Study 3 for VCE Physics, you’ll learn how to:
- describe Einstein’s two postulates for his theory of special relativity that:
- the laws of physics are the same in all inertial (non-accelerated) frames of reference
- the speed of light has a constant value for all observers regardless of their motion or the motion of the source.
