One way to set up the system of synchronized clocks would be for the chief observer to summon all her helpers to the origin O and syncronize their clocks, and have them travel to their assigned positions very slowly. Prove this claim as follows: Suppose a certain observer is assighned to a position P at a distance d from the origin. If he travels at a constant speed V, when he reaches P how much will his clock differ from the chiefs clock at O? Show that this difference approches 0 as V approches 0.

So i found the observer that is moving with speed V has a time t=d/v at first i thought this was the difference but the limit is not 0. now i am thinking that there is no difference between the observer and chief because he is moving very slowly, but is that is right how do i show that the limit approches 0 ?

thanks for the help
