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

For what value of v does Gamma (G) =1.0100? Observe that for speeds lower than this value, time dilationand length contraction are effects amounting to less that 1%

2. Relevant equations

L=Lp/G=Lp(1-(v^2/c^2))^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I do not know where to start. Is this the correct formula, and then if it is, how would I go about solving for the Velocity?
