Homework Statement



A clock chimes every hour, on the hour in it's rest frame, is it possible for an observer to measure the time between chimes less than an hour?

Homework Equations



t = [tex]\gamma [/tex]t0

The Attempt at a Solution



I understand that if an observer travelling in the frame S' relative to the clock's rest, S, frame observes a time dilation. Now, if the clock were in the non inertial reference frame travelling relative to the observer's rest frame, would the time measured between chimes by the observer be contracted?
