how can this happen?

Recommended Posts

if relative speed of light is constant for all reference frames-

suppose there are two light sources one moving with a speed of light itself. now light emitted from them fall on a shooter simultaneously & gets reflected to a stationary observer now since the velocity of light was c wrt the person moving with the speed of light it must be 2c wrt the stationary 1. if not the stationary observer can calculate the vel of light as 0 for the source moves with velocity c itself.

again if the vel is 2c for him he can observe the same event the shooter firing twice. for one of the lights travel faster. i cant understand. can light really be emitted then? if not what's stopping it? pls explain.

A light source (or anything except light itself) cannot be moving at C. And nothing is ever 2C. Light moves at C relative to you no matter how fast you are moving relative to anything else. I don't really follow your question, but is it still a problem if the source is moving at less than C?

ya. is there harm supposing what a light would observe?

actually infinite no of times a person is allowed to see the event, just dont understand then y dont we really do????????????

ok lets forget about the reference frame moves at vel c.let it move with some uless than c. still there is the problem.

For all frames, the speed of the light is c.
