    Do the walls of the enclosed compartment establish the reference frame, or do the perpendicular coordinate axes establish the reference frame? In one case the air molecules are limited in their...

    I disagree with you on that point KJW. I think that the motion of the enclosed compartment relative to the tracks is very relevant. That is why I made the post. The comparison of the time...

    I think we are mostly in agreement KJW, but it would be a subtraction inside the enclosed compartment since the observer is moving in an opposite direction to the sound wave. I am having trouble...

    You are thinking exactly what I was thinking. I edited some additional statements to reflect just what you said. From inside the compartment the time measurement would appear as if the train were...
  5. The speed of sound in an enclosed compartment.

    Two observers are riding on a train traveling along a straight level section of track at the constant velocity, v. It is a windless day, so that the air/medium is at rest relative to the moving...
  6. c as the speed of light and the speed of sound in Michelson-Morley.

    The symbol, c, represents both the speed of light and the speed of sound in most scientific reference texts. Can the speed of sound be substituted for the speed of light in the Michelson-Morley (MM)...
