and SpaceTime Coordinates
Einstein's postulate of Special Relativity:
All the laws of Physics are the same for all observers moving with consant relative velocity.
An important corollary:
All observers in inertial frames measure the same value for the speed of light (in vacuum),
c = 3.00 x 108 m/s
What is a reference frame?
Synchrosize all the clocks.
