Invert time?
« on: 16/02/2016 07:45:19 »
Hello science, it is me again ,

I have just planned a journey, the journey will take exactly one hour at a set speed, so I have set my alarm to countdown from one hour, when I arrived at my destination, my clock still said 5 seconds, why did it not say 0, ''why do I not hear alarm bells ringing''.?

I can only conclude I experienced a slowing down of time or I can conclude that I did not account for starting velocity of 0 and the length contraction/expansion of time, of acceleration to get to my constant speed.  What do you think my mistake is?

I started off at 0 velocity, then it went like this -  5 m a second, 4 m a second, 3 m a second, 2 m a second, 1m a second, 1m a second,, 1m a second , 1 m a second.


My constant speed was flat out, it was my terminal velocity.

Why as this question been moved to new theories? 


Do you spot something of importance in my question?   




I am simply asking a question   therefore you must have instantly spotted something :)

I suspect someone in Admin was housekeeping.
Was it in Physics etc; in which case it needs to be a question on a science topic. Looking at this it meanders, but there is no real question in it.

Very unlikely anything of importance, as I say probably housekeeping.

It was important but nether mind it is one of them questions again where I can't quite put my finger on the actual question... I suppose it was a question to ask yourselves about. :)
