    Special relativity/lorentz transforms

    Alright so from my understanding of what you said the three events in the unprimed frame are, (x,t) (0,0) (-d,d/u) (d,d/u) and the gamma that should be used is the one where racerone's velocity is used or gamma=1/(sqr(1-u^2/c^2)) and then the transforms can be calculated for...

    Special relativity/lorentz transforms

    Homework Statement Two racers start in between two finish lines of equal distance 'd' , ie a distance 2d sits between the two lines with the racers sitting a distance d from each. Refferees who time the race in the earth frame are able to say that both racers start at time=0s and at the same...
