## Summary:

- time dilation

Suppose there are two clocks. Clock B is moving with a speed of ##v## relative to clock A. Then clock A is moving with a speed of ##-v## relative to clock B.

Let ##t_0## be the time interval for two events in the framework of clock A, while ##t## be the time interval for the same two events in the framwork of clock B.

Then ##t=\gamma t_0##. Since ##\gamma## is greater than one, so for clock B time runs slower than for clock A.

But, also, ##t_0=\gamma t##, then time in clock A runs slower than in clock B.

This seems wrong. But where?

Thanks!
