Let me start by saying I most likly have no idea what I am doing. Also, that I realize the factor by which the moveing clock differs from the stationary one will be very very small. Sorry if this belongs in the math fourm, i thought it might require physics knowledge.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What I'm having problems with is the systems of measurement and how they work together.

gamma = sqrt(1-v^2)

v relitive to the speed of light.

60 Miles per hour = 26.8224 Meters per second

26.8224/299792458 = 8.946989587×10^-8(m/s)/c

(8.946989587×10^-8)^2 = 8.00486227x10^-15

1-8.00486227x10^-15 = 2.00486227x10^-15

sqrt(2.00486227x10^-15) = 4.477568838x10^-8

gamma = 4.477568838x10^-8

And now I'm totaly lost.

How is time measured? What do I multiply gamma with to get an actual # of how much of a second the clock is off?

and/or do I have no idea what I am doing?
