(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

At what relative speed will the Galilean and the Lorentz expressions for position x differ by 1%? What fraction of the speed of light is this?

2. Relevant equations

G- x' = x - vt

L- x' = [tex]\gamma[/tex]x - vt

3. The attempt at a solution

I dont know what im trying to do exactly.

G-L = .01

G = .99L

G = L + .01L

Do any of these seem relevant?
