1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data As outlaws escape in their getaway car, which goes 3/4c, the police officer fires a bullet from a pursuit car, which only goes 1/2c. The muzzle velocity of the bullet (relative to the gun) is 1/3c. Does the bullet reach its target according to Galileo? According to Einstein? 2. Relevant equations Velocity addition Lorentz factor u=(v+u')/(1+(vu'/c^2)) u'=(u-v)/(1-(uv/c^2)) u'=u-v 3. The attempt at a solution I said yes, the bullet reaches the target in both situations because each time I got a velocity greater than 0.75c, the velocity of the outlaw's car.
