I have came up some question asking the velocity change of the rocket in its instantaneous rest frame.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

And I have been taught that in the instantaneous rest frame, v=0, dgamma/dt =0, gamma = 1. if v is always zero, how come to talk about the change in velocity?

Thanks in advance
