E&M Scenarios Reimagined in Relativistic Reference Frames

While this class has covered the electric and magnetic fields of stationary objects, it has not addressed the concept of objects in motion. In this project, I will first derive the relativistic transformation equations for electric and magnetic fields. Then, I will apply these equations to a number of scenarios that have already arisen in the stationary form, such as a parallel plate capacitor, a bar magnet, a solenoid, and a current-carrying wire. These scenarios will then be assessed at varying speeds.

    I am looking forward to your magnetic and electric relativistic scenarios. Remember that you are required to create visual models such as vector fields. Also, list the various scenarios. What kinds of speeds are you thinking of using? It helps to categorize in terms of c.
