Introducing the theory of relativity

Foundations of Chemistry 18 (1):15-19 (2016)

A simple way of introducing the theory of relativity to chemistry students is presented. This is based on experimental observations of the variation in the mass of an electron with speed. Analysis of these generates the equations chemists use, and provides a basis for critical discussion of the theory.
