## Homework Statement

A clock is moving past us at speed [tex]v=\frac{c}{2}[/tex] reads [tex]t^{'}=0[/tex] when our clock read t=0. Using the Lorentz tranformation, find out what our clock will read when the moving clock reads 10s.

## Homework Equations

[tex]t=\gamma(x^{'}+\frac{Vt^{'}}{c^{2}})[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

Alright so I know I have this one wrong if I use the equation for time dilation I get 11.5 seconds and it is correct, but I am having trouble using the lorenz transformation to get the same answer. For [tex]x^{'}[/tex] I am using the equation Vt=x and get 5cs (light seconds), but I am ending up with a t=14. seconds.

I have some small silly disconnect somewhere. Help?
