1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A particle moves such that its relativistic factor γ equals one million. Find β (=v/c). Give answer in the form β = 0.999..., with correct number of nines before first non-nine digit. Do not use a calculator 2. Relevant equations (1-β^2)^(-1/2) = 10^6 3. The attempt at a solution I've messed around algebraically in a few ways, and tried the binomial approximation, but can't seem to find a way to deal with the β^2 without a calculator.
