Relativity physics refers to the physical theories of Albert Einstein. With his theories of special relativity and general relativity, the scientist redefined the concepts of space, time, energy, gravity and matter. Relativity is one of the main aspects of modern physics and provides the elements to understand the cosmic processes and the geometry of the universe.
Special relativity refers to the objects that are moving with respect to inertial frames of references. This theory proves that the speed of light is a limit which can not be reached by any material objects. Also, special relativity is the foundation of the equation E=mc2.
General relativity focuses on gravity, which is one of the fundamental forces of the universe. General relativity outlines large-scale physical phenomena such as planetary dynamics, black holes and the evolution of the universe.
Both special and general relativity have affected the physical science and humanity, above all with the application of nuclear energy and nuclear weapons. As well as this, by rethinking of the fundamental category of the space and time, relativity has been the origin of new social, philosophical and artistic interpretations, affecting different cultures in various ways.
