Theory of Relativity or the Law of Relativity by Albert Einstein is recognised as one of the pioneering achievements of 20th-century physics. The [course_title] course focuses and illustrates the basic concepts of Einstein’s theory of relativity which was published in 1916.

According to the theory of relativity, the laws of physics are the same for all non-accelerating observers. Einstein showed that the speed of light within a vacuum is the same no matter the speed at which an observer travels. In the course, you will learn all these including Einstein’s postulates, the Lorentz transformation, relativistic effects and paradoxes, and applications involving electromagnetism and particle physics. Other topics covered in the course are cosmology, the principle of equivalence, the Schwarzschild metric and black holes, and the FRW metric.

**Assessment**

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.

**Certification**

Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:

- Add the certificate to your CV or resume and brighten up your career
