## Homework Statement

A muon is traveling with a speed of v = 2.995x10^8 m/s. Calculate the value of the dilated lifetime for this muon. Assume that the speed of light is c = 3.000 x 108 m/s and that the proper lifetime of the muon is 1.500 x 10-6 s.

Note: Do your calculations to 4 significant figures. Then round off to give an answer good to 3 significant figures. Be sure to include the correct abbreviation for the SI unit.

## Homework Equations

Dilated lifetime

delta t = delta t

_{0}/ [sqrt 1 - (v

^{2}/c

^{2})]

## The Attempt at a Solution

How do I incorparoate the proper lifetime of the muon (1.500x10

^{-6}sec)?
