LECTURE NOTES 17

Proper Time and Proper Velocity

As you progress along your world line {moving with ordinary velocity u in lab frame

IRF(S)} on the ct vs. x Minkowski/space-time diagram, your watch runs slow {in your rest

frame IRF(S')} in comparison to clocks on the wall in the lab frame IRF(S).

The clocks on the wall in the lab frame IRF(S) tick off a time interval dt, whereas in your

rest frame IRF( S ) the time interval is: dt dt u 1 u2 dt

n.b. this is the exact same time dilation formula that we obtained earlier, with:

u 1 1 u c 1 1 u2 and: u u c

2

We use u u relative speed of an object as observed in an inertial reference frame

{here, u = speed of you, as observed in the lab IRF(S)}.

We will henceforth use v v relative speed between

two inertial systems e.g. IRF( S ) relative to IRF(S):

IRF( S ), we give it a special name: d dt = proper

time interval (in your rest frame), and: t = proper time (in your rest frame).

The name proper is due to a mis-translation of the French word propre, meaning own.

Proper time is different than ordinary time, t.

Proper time is a Lorentz-invariant quantity, whereas ordinary time t depends on the

choice of IRF - i.e. ordinary time is not a Lorentz-invariant quantity.

c 2 dt 2 dt

= 0 in rest frame IRF(S)

2 t2

Proper time: 2 1 d dt t2 t1 t

1 t1

In terms of 4-D space-time, proper time is analogous to arc length S in 3-D Euclidean space.

Special designation is given to being in the rest frame of an object.

The rest frame of an object = the proper frame.

UIUC Physics 436 EM Fields & Sources II Fall Semester, 2015 Lect. Notes 17 Prof. Steven Errede

Consider a situation where you are on an airplane flight from NYC to LA. The pilot comes on

the loudspeaker and announces in mid-flight that the jet stream is flowing backwards today, and

that the planes present velocity is u 0.8c u 0.8!! , due west.

What the pilot means by velocity is the spatial displacement d per unit time interval dt .

The pilot is referring to the planes velocity relative to the ground (n.b. here, we make the

simplifying assumption that the earth is non-rotating/non-moving, so that we can use IRFs)

Thus, d and dt are quantities as measured by an observer on the ground (e.g. an airplane

flight controller, using RADAR) in the ground-based (lab) IRF(S).

d d and dt are measured in the

Thus: u = ordinary velocity in the lab IRF(S)

dt ground-based (lab) IRF(S)

You, on the other hand are in your own rest frame IRF(S') in the airplane, sitting in your seat.

You know that the distance from NYC to LA is L 2763 miles (as measured on the ground,

referring to your trusty Rand-McNally Road Atlas {back pages} that you brought along with you).

So you, from your perspective, might be more interested in the quantity known as your

proper velocity , defined as:

d Spatial displacement, as measured on the ground

Proper 3-Velocity: = hybrid measurement = (in lab IRF(S)) per unit time interval, as measured

d in your (or an objects) rest frame (in IRF(S')).

Of course, for non-relativistic speeds u c , then: u to a high degree.

From a theoretical perspective, an appealing aspect of proper 3-velocity is that it Lorentz-

transforms simply from one IRF to another IRF.

(as measured in your (or an objects) rest frame IRF(S').

Suppose we want to Lorentz transform your proper 4-velocity from the lab IRF(S) to another

(different) IRF(S") along a common x -axis, in which IRF(S") is moving with relative velocity

Now we can see why Lorentz transformation of ordinary velocities is more cumbersome

than Lorentz transformation of proper 4-velocities:

d numerator,d d

For ordinary 3-velocities u , we must Lorentz transform both

dt denominator,dt dt

dx

For proper 4-velocities we only need to transform the numerator, d d .

d

In classical mechanics, the 3-D vector linear momentum p= mass velocity v , i.e. p mv .

How do we extend this to relativistic mechanics?

d

Should we use the ordinary velocity u for v ,

dt

d

or should we use the proper velocity for v ??

d

In classical mechanics, and u are identical.

In relativistic mechanics, and u are not identical.

We must use the proper velocity in relativistic mechanics, because otherwise, the law of

conservation of momentum would be inconsistent with the principle of relativity {the laws of

physics are the same in all IRFs} if we were to define relativistic 3-momentum as: p mu . No!!

If the system is not closed, (e.g. external forces are present) then Etot and ptot will not {necessarily}

be conserved. Simply expand/enlarge the definition of the system until it is closed {e.g.

include whats producing the external forces}, then the (new) Etot and ptot will be conserved.

mean/proper lifetime 26.0 ns ) to a muon and muon neutrino: v . The charged

pion mass m is not conserved in the decay { m (m mv ) }, however the relativistic

This is what happens in the everyday world of particle physics! Its perfectly OK !!!

e.g. The production of a neutral rho meson in electron-positron collisions: e e 0 .

Similarly, the time-reversed situation: the decay of a neutral rho meson 0 e e manifestly

also involves the EM interaction.

The EM interaction is invariant under time-reversal, i.e. t t , thus {in the rest frame of the

neutral rho meson} the transition rate e e 0 (#/sec) vs. the decay rate 0 e e

(#/sec) are identical {for the same/identical electron / positron momenta in neutral rho meson

production vs. decay}. Experimentally: 0 e e 7.02KeV 1.70 1018 sec 1 .

For our above macroscopic inelastic collision problem, microscopically what would the new

matter of the macroscopic mass M be made up of, since M M 2m 52 m 2m 12 m ???

In a classical analysis of the inelastic collision of two relativistic macroscopic lumps of clay

{each of mass m} the composite / stuck-together single lump of clay of mass M 52 m 2m would

be very hot it would have a great deal of thermal energy in fact !!!

In classical collisions, if total kinetic energy Ekin is not conserved inelastic collision.

An inelastic (i.e. a sticky) collision generates heat at the expense of kinetic energy.

An inelastic collision of an electron (e) with an atom {initially in its ground state} may

leave the atom in an excited state, or even ionized, kicking out a once-bound atomic electron!

Internal {quantum} degrees of freedom can be excited in inelastic e - atom collisions.

An explosive collision generates kinetic energy at the expense of chemical (i.e. EM)

energy, or nuclear (i.e. strong-force) energy, or weak-force energy. . . .

If kinetic energy is conserved (classically), elastic (i.e. billiard-ball) collision.

In relativistic collisions, total 3-momentum and total energy are always conserved

(in a closed system) but total mass and total kinetic energy are not in general conserved.

* Once again, in relativistic collisions, a process is called elastic if the total kinetic energy

is conserved total mass is also conserved in relativistic elastic collisions.

* A relativistic collision is called inelastic if the total kinetic energy is not conserved.

Total mass is not conserved in a relativistic inelastic collision.

A rapidly moving atom isotropically emits monochromatic light (photons of frequency f ) in its

own rest frame IRF. What is the frequency f of the emitted photons as observed in the lab frame

IRF as a function of the lab angle between the atoms velocity v z and the direction of

observation { = photons momentum vector p } in the lab frame?

y p

v z

Without any loss of generality, we can choose the lab velocity v of the atom to be along the z

axis in the lab frame IRF {note that: z z v }.

hf

The energy of the photon in the atoms rest frame IRF is: E pc hf where: p p c

is the magnitude of the photons momentum in the atoms rest frame IRF. We can also assume

without loss of generality that the emitted photons momentum vector p lies in the y-z plane

of the atoms rest frame IRF. In the atoms rest frame IRF, the emitted photon makes an angle

with respect to the z axis.

The 4-momentum vector of the emitted photon in the atoms rest frame IRF is thus:

p E c , px , py , pz hf

c

c 1, 0,sin , cos

We then carry out a 1-D Lorentz transformation from the atoms rest frame IRF to the lab frame

IRF, boosted along the z z v axis (see e.g. Physics 436 Lect. Notes 16, p. 11), where:

v c and: 1 1 2 :

Thus, in the lab IRF, the emitted photons 4-momentum vector is:

p E c , p x , p y , p z 1 cos , 0,sin , cos

c

The emitted photons energy as observed in the lab IRF is: E hf hf 1 cos .

The frequency of the emitted photon observed in the lab IRF is: f f 1 cos .

Experimentally, the atoms rest frame photon emission angle is {often} not measureable;

the lab frame photon emission angle is what is measured experimentally. Hence, in order for this

formula to be useful, we must re-write this expression in terms of the lab frame photon emission

angle . The relationship between the atoms rest frame photon emission angle and the lab

frame photon emission angle can be obtained by analyzing the 3-momentum components of the

photon in the atoms rest frame p vs. the lab frame p , as shown in the figures below:

In its own rest frame IRF, a star isotropically radiates {thermal/black-body} photons. For

simplicitys sake {here}, we will assume that all radiated photons in the stars rest frame IRF

have the same energy E . The total rate of emission of such photons into 4 steradians in the

rest frame IRF of the star {assumed to be constant} is: R dN dt # sec . Note that in the

stars rest frame IRF, the temporal interval dt d the proper time interval. The total

luminosity of the star in its rest frame IRF is: L E R E dN dt Joules sec Watts .

The differential rate of emission of such photons into solid angle element d d cos d

in the stars rest frame IRF is:

dR d dN d dN dt

# sec sr

d d dt d

The differential luminosity of the star as measured in its rest frame IRF is:

dL d E R dR d dN d dN dt

E E E Joules sec sr Watts sr

d d d d dt d

Suppose that you are an astronomer on earth, observing this star through a telescope. Your

inertial reference frame is the lab frame IRF. {For simplicitys sake here, we neglect/ignore the

motion of the earth}. If the star is moving with velocity v z z , then what is the differential

luminosity dL d in the earths lab frame IRF i.e. how is dL d related to dL d ?

There are three inertial reference frame effects that must be taken into account here:

Time dilation: dt dt Rate of emission in rest frame IRF rate of emission in lab frame IRF

Angle transformation: d d

Lorentz transformation from rest frame IRF of star to lab frame IRF.

Doppler effect: E E

The time dilation effect is: dt dt or: , where: 1 1 2 and: v c .

The 1-D Lorentz transformation from the stars rest frame IRF to the lab frame IRF on earth, for

v z z is the same as that for the above relativistic Doppler shift example:

The 4-momentum vector associated with a photon emitted from the surface of the star in the rest

frame IRF of the star is: p E c , px , py , pz Ec , 0, Ec sin , Ec cos Ec 1, 0,sin , cos

Now, the lab frame IRF vs. the stars rest frame IRF solid angle elements are, respectively:

d d cos d and: d d cos d .

The infinitesimal solid angle element d d cos d and the infinitesimal area element

da R 2 d Rd cos Rd {where the infinitesimal and arc lengths S Rd cos and

S Rd , respectively} associated with the lab frame IRF are shown in the figure below.

As per the above discussion of the relativistic Doppler shift, for v z z , without any loss of

generality we can choose the observation point P r Rr to lie in the y-z plane ( 90 ):

z da R 2 d Rd cos Rd

For the choice of observation point P r Rr lying in the y-z plane ( 90 ), note that x

is to r cos z sin y . Thus, since transverse components of a 4-vector are unaffected by a

Lorentz transformation e.g. from the rest frame IRF to the lab frame IRF, then , hence

and d d . Thus, in order to determine the relationship between solid angle element

d d cos d and d d cos d , we only need to determine how d cos is related to

d cos . From above, we already have the relation:

Relativistic Dynamics

Newtons 1st Law of Motion: An object at rest remains at rest, an object moving with speed v

continues to move at speed v, unless acted upon by a net/non-zero/unbalanced force

to the relativistic domain, because e.g. if two objects are separated in 3-D space, the 3rd Law is

incompatible with the relativity of simultaneity.

As

Suppose the 3-D force of A acting on B at some instant t is: F r ,t F r ,t

AB B B observed

e.g. in lab

and the 3-D force of B acting on A at the same instant t is: FBA A A IRF(S)

However, a moving observer {moving relative to the above IRF(S)} will report that these

equal-but-opposite 3-D forces occurred at different times as seen from his/her IRF(S'), thus in

his/her IRF(S'), Newtons 3rd Law is violated (the two 3-D forces F rB , t and F

(xA, tA)) where the two 3-D forces F r , t and F r , t are applied at the same point (xA) at

In analogy to the definition of the proper time interval d and the proper velocity

Relativistic dynamics can be formulated in terms of either ordinary quantities or proper

(particle rest frame) quantities. The latter is much neater / elegant, but it is (by its nature)

restricted to the particles rest frame IRF(S) {n.b. We can always Lorentz boost this proper

result to any other inertial reference frame. . . }

There is a very simple reason for this! Since we humans live in the lab frame IRF(S)

we want to know everything about particles trajectory, the forces acting on it, etc. in the lab

because this is the only IRF that we can (easily) carry out physical measurements in often, it is

not possible to make physical measurements e.g. in a particles rest frame / proper frame,

especially if the particles are in relativistic motion (e.g. at Fermilab/LHC/ hadron colliders).

In the long run, we will (usually) be interested in the particles trajectory as a function of

ordinary time, so in fact the ordinary 4-force F dp dt is often more useful, even if it is

more painful / cumbersome to calculate / compute

We want to obtain the relativistic generalization of the classical Lorentz force law

FC qE qu B { u = particles ordinary velocity in IRF(S)}. Does the classical formula FC

correspond to the ordinary relativistic force F , or to the proper / Minkowski force K ?

Thus, for the relativistic Lorentz force, should we write: F qE qu B q E u B ???

Or rather, should the relativistic Lorentz force relation be: K qE qu B q E u B ???

Since proper time and ordinary time are identical in classical physics / Euclidean /

Galilean 3-space, classical physics cant tell us the answer.

It turns out that the Lorentz force law is an ordinary relativistic force law: F q E u B

Well see why shortly Well also construct the proper / Minkowski EM force law, as well . . .

Consider a magnetic dipole moment m modeled as a rectangular loop of wire (dimensions

w ) carrying a steady current I. Imagine the current as a uniform stream of non-interacting

positive charges flowing freely through the wire at constant speed u. (i.e. a fictitious kind of

superconductor.) A uniform electric field E is applied as shown in the figure below:

The application of the external uniform electric field E Eo y changes the physics the

electric charges are accelerated in the left segment of the loop and decelerated in the right

segment of the loop. [n.b. admittedly this is not a very realistic model, but other more realistic

models do lead to the same result see e.g. V. Hnizdo, Am. J. Phys. 65, 92 (1997)].

Find the total momentum of all of the charges in the loop.

The momenta associated with the electric charges in the left and right segments of the loop

cancel each other (i.e. p (in left segment) = p (in right segment), so we only need to consider the

momenta associated with the electric charges flowing in the top and bottom segments of the loop.

Suppose there are N charges flowing in the top segment of the loop, moving in x direction

with speed u u E 0 {because they underwent acceleration traveling on the LHS segment}

and N charges flowing in the bottom segment of the loop, moving in the x direction with

speed u u E 0 {because they underwent deceleration traveling on the RHS segment}.

Note that the current I u must be the same in all four segments of the loop, otherwise

charges would be piling up somewhere.

This so-called macroscopic hidden linear momentum is strictly relativistic, purely mechanical

But note that it precisely cancels the electromagnetic linear momentum stored in the E and B

fields!!! (Microscopically, the momentum imbalance arises from the imbalance of virtual photon

emission on top segment of the loop vs. the bottom segment of the loop.)

Likewise, the corresponding hidden angular momentum precisely cancels the

electromagnetic angular momentum stored in the E and B fields.

Now go back and take another look at Griffiths Example 8.3, pages 356-57. (The coax cable

carrying uniform charge / unit length and steady current I flowing down / back cable.)

Lets pursue this problem a little further

Suppose there is a change in the current, e.g. suppose the current drops / decreases to zero.

One might think that this net hidden force would be exactly cancelled / compensated for by

a countering force due to the electromagnetic fields, as we saw in the static case ( dI dt 0 ),

with a steady current I. But it isnt!! Why??

As we saw for M(1) magnetic dipole radiation, a time-varying current in a loop produces EM

radiation. Essentially there is a radiation reaction / back-force that acts on the antenna a

radiation pressure much like the recoil / impulse from firing a bullet out of a gun the short

explosive pulse launches the bullet, but the gun is also kicked backwards, too.

The same thing happens here when dI dt 0 - the far zone EM radiation fields are produced

(i.e. real photons) while dI dt 0 and carry away linear momentum, and since dI dt 0 ,

a net force imbalance on the radiating object! (n.b. e.g. by linear momentum conservation, a

laser pen has a recoil force acting on it from emitting the laser radiation a radiation back reaction)

Likewise, the net hidden time rate of change of relativistic angular momentum is:

tot

rel t

dLtot dprel t 1 dm t

r 2 Eo r x

dt dt c dt

Which will also not be exactly cancelled either, for the same reason the EM radiation field can

/ will carry away angular momentum

dLtot

In reality, in order to calculate rel

t , we need to go back

dt

and integrate infinitesimal contributions along the (short)

segments of upper and lower / top and bottom segments of the

loop because r p rp sin , between r and p .

dp dp

Same for r r sin .

dt dt

Conclusions wont be changed by this, just actual #.

dL

As we know, the time rate of change of angular momentum: = torque.

dt

Thus, the time rate of change of the net / total hidden relativistic angular momentum

tot

dLrel t tot

= net hidden relativistic torque, rel t .

dLtot dprel t tot 1 dm t

Thus: rel t r r Frel t 2 r E 0

dt dt c dt

Linear momentum, angular momentum, energy, etc. are all conserved for this whole system,

its just that the EM radiation emitted from the antenna is free-streaming, carrying away all these

quantities with it!

In the static situation I = constant, the hidden relativistic linear momentum and angular

momentum is exactly cancelled by the linear momentum and angular momentum (respectively)

carried by the (macroscopic) static electromagnetic fields E and B . Microscopically, the field

linear and angular momentum is carried by the static, virtual photons associated with the

macroscopic E and B fields, cancelling the (macroscopic) hidden linear and angular

relativistic momentum of the magnetic dipole in a uniform E -field.

becoming real photons, which carry away {real} linear and angular momentum. Hidden

relativistic linear and angular momentum is no longer exactly cancelled by the (now) real field

linear and angular momentum associated with the EM radiation fields. It is only partially

cancelled by remaining / extant virtual / near-zone / inductive zone EM fields.
