Some random equations

  1. Aug 15, 2004 #1
    A random equation...

    [tex]a=\frac{dt_{o}}{t^3\sqrt{1 - v^2/c^2}}[/tex]

    [tex]a[/tex] is acceleration,
    [tex]d[/tex] is distance traveled,
    [tex]t[/tex] is the time of the observer(stationary),
    [tex]t_o[/tex] is the time of the moving observer,
    [tex]c[/tex] is the constant of light(the speed of light).

    Just to see how this fares with you guys.

    When you post a bunch of equations, it would be much clearer to your readers if you would define your symbols. Otherwise, the equations are fairly meaningless.

    Sorry about that...You were correct. I edited them in. Thanks!

    Ok, after trying to prove them, I have found that all but one are wrong...:(

    It seems that I accidentally concluded that [itex]\frac{1}{2} mv^2=E[/itex]...
