In all the textbooks I read on SR, they always list the LT assuming y'=y and z'=z. But how does the time coordinate transform if the speed has a y and a z component?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm guessing

[tex]t' = \frac{t-(v_x x + v_y y +v_z z )/c^2}{\sqrt{1-v^2/c^2}}[/tex]
