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

A spacecraft is traveling around earth at 1.8x10^8m/s relative to the earth. If the spacecraft determines two events on earth to be 32H, what time interval would they find if the spacecraft is traveling at 2.82x10^8m/s?

2. Relevant equations

delta Tm=delta Ts/[1-(v^2)/(c^2)]

Where Tm= time viewed by a moving object

Ts= time viewed y a stationary object

v= velocity

c= speed of light=3x10^8m/s

3. The attempt at a solution

This is the equation i know, but i don't know how to incorporate the 32h from just the spacecrafts frame of reference
