The Wave Equation A-i Although central to the development of classical mechanics, the concepts of space and time would remain arguable writing analytically seventh edition foil more than two and a half centuries following the publication of Sir Isaac Newton's Philosophie naturalis principia mathematica in As Newton put it in the first pages of the Principia, "Absolute, true and mathematical time, of itself, and from its own nature, flows equably, without relation to anything external, and by another name is called duration.
Absolute space, in its own nature, without relation to anything external, remains always similar and immovable. There he claimed that Newton had acted contrary to his expressed intention of "framing no hypotheses," that is, accepting as fundamental premises of a scientific theory nothing that could not be inferred directly from "observable phenomena" or induced from them by argument.
Indeed, although Newton was on the verge of overtly expressing this intent in Book III of the Principia as the fifth and last rule of his Regulae Philosophandi rules of reasoning in philosophyit is signfficant that he refrained from doing so.
Throughout his scientific career he exposed and rejected many hypotheses as false; he tolerated many as merely harmless; he put to use those that were verifiable.
Vectors following from them by argument based on induction," proved impossible to avoid. His concepts of space and time fell in this class. The acceptance of such hypotheses as fundamental was an embarrassing necessity; hence, he hesitated to adopt the frame-nohypotheses rule.
Newton certainly could be excused this sin of omission. After all, the adoption of these hypotheses and others of similar ilk such as the "force" of gravitation led to an elegant and comprehensive view of the world the lilces of which had never been seen.
Not until the late 18th and early 19th centuries would experiments in electricity and magnetism yield observable phenomena that could be understood only from the vantage point of a new space—time paradigm arising from Albert Einstein's special relativity.
Hermann Minkowski introduced this new paradigm in a semipopular lecture in Cologne, Germany in as follows: The views of space and time which I wish to lay before you have sprung from the soil of experimental physics and therein lies their strength.
From now on, space by itself and time by itself are doomed to fade away into the shadows, and only a kind of union between the two will preserve an independent reality. Thus, even though his own concepts of space and time were superceded, Newton most certainly would have taken great delight in seeing the emergence of a new space—time concept based upon observed "phenomena," which vindicated his unwritten frame-nohypotheses rule.
Units1 and Dimensions We shall assume that space and time are described strictly in the Newtonian sense. Three- dimensional space is Eucidian, and positions of points in that space are specified by a set of three numbers x, y, z relative to the origin 0,0,0 of a rectangular Cartesian coordinate system.
A length is the spatial separation of two points relative to some standard length. Time is measured relative to the duration of reoccurrences of a given configuration of a cyclical system—say, a pendulum swinging to and fro, an Earth rotating about its axis, or electromagnetic waves from a cesium atom vibrating inside a metallic cavity.
The time of occurrence of any event is specified by a number t, which represents the number of reoccurrences of a given configuration of a chosen cyclical standard. All this sounds simple enough, but a substantial difficulty has been swept under the rug: Just what are the standard units?English Reading and Writing Analytically SF.
