I saw the following scenario on an episode of Cosmos: An interstellar space ship accelerates at 1g for the 1st half of a journey to a distant star and then decelerates at 1g for the 2nd half. So with constant acceleration, the velocity would go beyond c at some point, which is not possible. So how would one find the relativistic versions of(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

v(t)=at

and

d(t)=0.5at^{2}

(assuming x_{0}=v_{0}= 0)

Thanks!
