Homework Help: Help on calculus!

  1. Oct 3, 2005 #1
    Consider an object of mass m at rest in S acted upon by a force F with components Fx and Fy. Sys tem S' moves with instantaneousvelocity v in teh x direction. Defining the force with F=d/dt (gamma mv), and using the Lorentz velocity transformation, show that a0 F'x=Fx,b0 F'y=Fy/gamma
    I show my work and problem in word doc: problem with calculus, cause it couldn't show up properly here
    second question, is it okay to see v/c^2 as zero in this case, then F'y would be equal to Fy/gamma, I mean to ignore v/c^2?
