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

Suppose that you are traveling on board a spacecraft that is moving with respect to the earth at a speed of 0.925c. You are breathing at a rate of 10.0 breaths per minute. As monitored on earth, what is your breathing rate in breaths per minute?

2. Relevant equations

t=t0/(1-v^2/c^2)^1/2

3. The attempt at a solution

t=1/(1-(.925x3e8)^2/(3e8)^2)^1/2

Not really sure where to go from here.
