1.) An astronaut is traveling in a space vehicle that has a speed of 0.510c relative to Earth. The astronaut measures his pulse rate at 73.0 per minute. Signals generated by the astronaut's pulse are radioed to Earth when the vehicle is moving perpendicularly to a line that connects the vehicle with an Earth observer.
What pulse rate does Earth observer measure?
What would be the pulse rate if the speed of the space vehicle were increased to 0.960c?
(a) 0.500c to 0.850c
(b) 0.850c to 0.945c
Note: 1 joule = 6.24150974 à? 10^12 megaelectron volts
The solution is explained and demonstrated with full formulas in solving the problem.
