I would like to derive gamma(v), by starting with the galilean transformations for x and x'. Knowing that t=t'=0, if a light pulse is emitted at the origin of S then the ratio t'/t should somehow be eliminated from the two equations. From there, one can obtain gamma(v).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Any ideas?
