In explaining time dilation we usually say, if velocity of A is greater than velocity of B, then time is slower for A as compared to B. However, if v(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{A}> v_{B}, using the equation for time dilation, t_{A}>t_{B}. So if 60 seconds passed for B, 100 seconds passed for A. How does that imply that time slowed down for A? Time, in above example, increased for A. So doesn't it means that time becomes faster for A?
