Homework Help: Length contraction -- numerical problem

  1. Jul 11, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    a) t' = l0/c

    b) ct1 = l0 /ϒ - vt1
    t1 = l0 /ϒ(c + v)

    c) t2 = l0 / (ϒ v)

    Is this correct?
