- Homework Statement
- Let O and O' be observers both moving along the x-axis at constant velocity. Assume O and O' meet at the origin. Suppose also that O' moves towards O with relative velocity v. O reference frame has coordinates (x,t) and O' reference frame has coordinates (x',t') What is the Lorentz transformation for the two coordinate frames. ( I only care about the relationship between the time coordinates)

- Relevant Equations
- Lorentz transform for positive velocity: t' = Lorentz factor * (1-v/c)t

I think this should be t'= Lorentz factor* (1+v/c)t, but that doesn't make sense to me.
