- u'=u/(δ(1-(uv)/c^2)

So for the formula, u'=u/(δ(1-(uv)/c^2)

u=2.06E8 and v=0. I am only looking at the y components here.

Since v=0 it really becomes u'=u/δ or u'= u*sqrt(1-(u^2)/c^2)).

Anyways when I plug this in I am getting 1.49E8 when the answer should be 0.951E8. Am I not using the correct formula here?
