From your prior post you brought in this URL: http://hubpages.com/hub/Minkowski-Diagram

which has this diagram (figure 3)

Using his v = 0.6c, how do you prove that the (1,1) is the same as the (2,2)

I can't make it happen.

Also, his Lorentz and Inverse Lorentz transformations are wrong. With the t and t' equations, he has his + and - inverted which will really mess one up if one tries to follow his logic.

Below is what he wrote:

Lorentz transformations* .........Inverse Lorentz transformations*

x' = (x-vt)/(1-v2/c2)1/2 ......................x = (x'+vt')/(1-v2/c2)1/2

y' = y ...........................................y = y'

z' = z........................................... z = z'

t' = (t + vx/c2)/ (1-v2/c2)1/2 .......t = (t' - vx'/c2)/ (1-v2/c2)1/2

This is what it should be:

Lorentz transformations* .........Inverse Lorentz transformations*

x' = (x-vt)/(1-v2/c2)1/2 ......................x = (x'+vt')/(1-v2/c2)1/2

y' = y ...........................................y = y'

z' = z........................................... z = z'

t' = (t - vx/c2)/ (1-v2/c2)1/2 .......t = (t' + vx'/c2)/ (1-v2/c2)1/2[/COLOR]

How do we get to him and inform him of this?
