Say if two synchronised clocks are at either end of a spacecraft. when the spacecraft accelerates, the clocks accelerate at different speeds due to length contraction and so are not synchronised post acceleration, according to a non accelerating observer who considered the clocks synchronised before their acceleration.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

How do I calculate the variation between the clocks according to this observer after the period of acceleration ceases?
