Bat and mirror relativistic problem is my solution good ?

  1. Oct 5, 2005 #1
    So the bat is flying with velocity 172 m/s and he see himself in mirror which is parallel to the direction of fly. He can himself in the mirror because he send a sound signals with velocity 344 m/s. So now i have to count angel to the direction of motion.
    a) first in arrangement of air
    b) in arrangement of bat.

    So here is my solution:
    a) cos alfa
    b) sin beta

    is it correct i'm not sure with arrangement

    Sorry for replying so late, but I really can't read your PDF. I suspect that's why no one responded to this. If you're still interested in discussing the problem, then can you either post a better scan or show your steps in LaTeX?
