gamma_{v}is a reasonable measure of the size of relativistic effects. Roughly speaking, at what speed would observations deviate from classical expectations by 1%?

2. Relevant equations

gamma_{v}= 1/ [sqrt91.v^{2}) / c^{2}]

3. The attempt at a solution

I've honestly puzzled over this question for hours, and have gotten nowhere. Any hints would be greatly appreciated. I have no idea where to even start. I know that I need gamma_{v}to be equal to 1.01 for it to be 1% different from classical physics. . .

However I'm not sure where to go from here.
