Galilean transformation is not completely Newtonian

Shukri Klinakua)

University of Prishtina, Rr. George Bush 31, Prishtina 10000, Kosovo

Hundreds of thousands of physicists, for more than a century, when they talk about space and time, “know by heart” that: according to Newton, space and time are absolute. But Newton also defined relative space and time. I invite physicists to (re)read Newton’s description of relative space and time, where they will see that the equation t0 ¼ t, which is imputed in the current Galilean transformation, has nothing to do with Newton’s contribution on this issue.


Des centaines de milliers de physiciens, depuis plus d'un siècle déjà, lorsqu'ils parlent d'espace et de temps, « savent par cœur » que : selon Newton, l'espace et le temps sont absolus. Mais Newton a également défini l'espace et le temps relatifs. J'invite les physiciens à (re)lire la description de Newton de l'espace et du temps relatifs, où ils verront que l'équation , qui est incluse dans la transformation galiléenne actuelle, n'a rien à voir avec la contribution de Newton sur cette question.


Key words: Space; Time; Relativity.
