Is superimposing three velocities possible?

    each of which is greater than c/3? can it work?

    edit: i mean superposing* in the title

    I assume you are referring to the Lorentz transformations. Perhaps if you specified the situation you are thinking of we could be of more help.

    Nope … if A thinks B is going north at c/2, and B thinks C is going north at c/2, and C thinks D is going north at c/2, then A still thinks D is going less than c (how much? :wink:)
