 Quote by ghwellsjr What happened to gamma?
I was describing this transformation:
 Quote by DaleSpam OK, let's look at the equations $t'=t-vx$ and $x'=x-vt$ in a little more detail.
Which has no gamma. I was showing a transformation (not the Lorentz transform) which had relativity of simultaneity, but not length contraction nor time dilation. The transformation above is not a useful transform for physics, just an example showing that the relativity of simultaneity is not the same thing as length contraction and time dilation.
