Ritz, ballistic theory
© Herbert Dingle
I t was this theory that Ritz challenged; he was not concerned with Einstein, whom he scarcely mentioned. Einstein's contribution was to unite Lorentz's electromagnetic theory with kinematics Ьу modifying the latter. The Lorentz transformation then became а set of kinematical equations, involving only space, time and velocity measurements instead of coordinates, while the characteristics of light called frequency and wavelength belonged only to electromagnetic theory.
