## Homework Statement

Example 1.9 in the text "Modern Physics for Scientists and Engineers provides an example of Doppler red shift (Where [tex]B[/tex]=v/c)

[tex]\sqrt{(1-B)/(1+B)}[/tex] = 1/3

and provides the answer of B=.08 having solved for B

I am having a problem handling the simple steps necessary to solve for B in the example

Which means I cannot solve the homework problem that involves the Doppler blue shift of an approaching star (see equation below)
