The Velocity Tensor and the Momentum Tensor

T. Lanczewski

Abstract


This paper introduces a new object called the momentum tensor. Together with the velocity tensorit forms a basis for establishing the tensorial picture of classical and relativistic mechanics. Some properties of the momentum tensor are derived as well as its relation with the velocity tensor. For the sake of clarity only two-dimensional case is investigated. However, general conclusions are also valid for higher dimensional spacetimes.

Keywords


relativistic classical mechanics; velocity tensor; momentum tensor
