    Hello everyone ,

    I am searching for information about an experiment that was originally Einsteins. It has to do with the subject of Relative Motion. The experiment was about not pretending that you are walking towards objects, but that you are remaining still, and that you're moving the earth like a giant treadmill under your feet. In other words, the objects are coming towards you. This was in a highschool physics textbook.
    Unfortunately I'm a complete science noob and can't find anything about it on the internet, I'm not sure in what direction I have to look for. If anyone could help me that would be great.

    Feel free to move this topic if this is not where it belongs.

    You can do that on a tread mill, imagine the treadmill is the earths surface.

    try reposting in physics, this is General Discussion, and most of us aren't physicists in this sub-forum. I highly doubt there's any good info on that experiment.
