Homework Statement
In this problem i take the maximum relative velocity of ether wind to be (u + v) where they both complement each other..
The Attempt at a Solution
Not sure how they ended up with a '4uv' term..
Good. What would the minimum relative velocity be during the day? δ is the change in Δt(c/λ) in going from maximum to minimum relative velocity.In this problem i take the maximum relative velocity of ether wind to be (u + v) where they both complement each other..
I got very close to the answer, just that my term had a '2uv' instead of a '4uv'..Good. What would the minimum relative velocity be during the day? δ is the change in Δt(c/λ) in going from maximum to minimum relative velocity.
Yes, but there is a factor of (1/2) beside the square...Did you calculate Δt for both the maximum and minimum velocity relative to the ether and then take the difference between these two Δt's? Also note the initial factor of 2 in the expression for Δt.
