# Help with $$1. Dec 5, 2014 ### Force1 [tex]\frac{1/sqrt 1-{v/c}^2}$$

(1/(sqrt 1-(v/c)^2))
Obviously I don't use tex enough to know how to write a simple relationship. I'm trying to get the tex for an inverse relationship for the time dilation factor to apply to the time calculated in the rest frame d/c, i.e. t=distance light travels divided by the speed of light.

I would describe it as 1 in the numerator, and in the denominator, the sqrt of (1 minus (v/c)^2).

### Force1

This may or may not be of interest, but I found that over there, after you post with tex, there is a time delay before it renders properly. I mentioned that, and rpenner saw my post and said:
