Using a Cartesian coordinate system E/X = c ?Where E is energy and X is vector .The linear function of X being a force ?

Quote from: Starlight on 23/01/2020 13:05:49Using a Cartesian coordinate system E/X = c ?Where E is energy and X is vector .The linear function of X being a force ?No that is not correct.Energy has the units kg-m^2/s^2Force has the units kg-m/s^2Energy divided by force leaves you with meters. Meters are not a velocity, so obviously there is an error in your equation.

The answer to the original question is "no".

The question was- is the speed of light a product of a linear function !

I presented a causality equation of the process that does not require units at this time .

Then you'd need to explain by what propulsion mechanism a photon was able to travel ?

E/X= c ?

Quote from: OPE/X= c ?Normally, you would write a linear equation as y=ax+b- Where x & y are the variables- a & b are constants (b could be zero; if a=0 it is a degenerate linear function: a constant)You can write E=hf (Planck's Equation)- Where E is energy- h is Plank's constant- f is the frequency of a photon- this is a linear equation: E is proportional to fAnd you can write c= fλ (or equivalently, f=c/λ)- where teh constant c is the speed of light- λ is the wavelength of light- Again, f is the frequency- This is not a linear equation: f is inversely proportional to λThis then produces E=hc/λ, or Eλ/h = c.- Which is something like what you were asking about. (where X=h/λ)- But c & h are constants in this equation. You can't change c by changing E- You can change E by changing λ.

My equation specifically ''asks'' about the linear momentum of light and the physical reasoning behind lights speed .I appreciate your considerate reply but it doesn't directly answer my question in regards to the mechanism behind lights speed .My logical formula specifically states the physical process and energy divided by a vector space . I believe that is quite applicable in explaining the question .In a 4 dimensional format :E / =f(x)?

Interesting collection of sciency words. The answer to the original question is "no".

The original equation was E/X = c "where....X is a vector". We know that X = h/λ. Unfortunately h/λ is not a vector.

An effect cannot occur before its cause .
