See attached for the full solution.
(a) By Length Contraction formula, L = L0
Or = 8/9
The solution determines the relativity in the given problem.
Special Relativity: Speed
The proper length of one spaceship is 5 times that of another. The two spaceships are traveling in the same direction and, while both are passing overhead, an Earth observer measures the two spaceships to be the same length. If the slower spaceship is moving with a speed of 0.332 c, determine the speed of the faster spaceship. Answer in units of c.View Full Posting Details
