Velocity Transformation in Reference Frame

Authors: Eric Su

A moving object in one inertial reference frame always moves at a different speed in another inertial reference frame. To determine this different speed, a temporary acceleration is applied to a duplicate of the first inertial reference frame in order to match the second inertial reference frame. The velocity transformation between two inertial reference frames is precisely derived based on the applied acceleration. The result shows that velocity transformation depends solely on the relative motion between inertial reference frames. Velocity transformation is independent of the speed of light.
