This physics application for Windows, Relativity 2, shows the time dilation, the mass expansion, and the length contraction when one student in a hypothetical journey travels in space at speeds near the speed of light. The application will request the following information to be entered:

Mass of the student

Age of the student

Speed of the spacecraft (from 0.1c to 0.999999998c)

Year the student left planet Earth

The student will return after 1,000 years have passed on planet Earth. The computer will give the following information:

Mass of the student while traveling in spacecraft

Length of the spacecraft while moving in space

Age of the student after 1,000 years have passed on planet Earth

Year in Planet Earth when the student returned

Again, this physics application is for computers using Windows 10 or newer.
