I'm over my head and need help for a story I am writing. I would like the science to be correct. I'm not sure I'm even phrasing the problem correctly, but here goes.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose a space ship will travel to a star that appears 10 light years from earth. The space ship will accelerate at 0.1 g (as experienced by the ship) for half the trip then turn around and accelerate the opposite rest of the time. What would be the integrals for determining the proper time and the time as it appears to people on earth?

Thanks
